Les lois de l'an II sur les enfants naturels : quels nouveaux droits pour les pères (1793-1804)

Abstract : Year II marks a turning point in children's legislation. Two laws, the 17 Nivôse and 12 Brumaire, establish equality of inheritance between brothers and sisters, elders and cadets, as well as between "bastards" born to "free" parents and legitimate ones born to married parents. This desire to equalize all children did not survive the Revolution: the Civil Code, in 1804, excluded children born out of wedlock from the succession of their parents. It was not until 1972 that French law re-established the principle of such extensive equality. The decisive character of the legislation of Year II is not due to this distant posterity but to the fact that it introduces an extension of fathers' rights that will be enshrined in the Civil Code and case law until the beginning of the 20th century.
