George Clemenceau

1841- 1929

French Stateman

Trained as a physician, Georges Clemenceau began his political career as Mayor of Montmartre in 1870. In 1876 he was elected as a radical member to the Chamber of Deputies and, in 1902, to the French Senate. From 1906 to 1909 Clemenceau served as French Premier. During this time, he strengthened the French-English Alliance. Clemenceau returned to the Premiership in 1917. He led the French delegation to the Paris Peace Conference following World War I, demanding harsh terms for the defeated Germany.
