The 24th February 1848, marked the day that Jacques-Charles Dupont de l'Eure (1767-1855) was made President of the provisional assembly, and made President of the Provisional Government, becoming France’s de facto Head of State, following the 1848 Revolution and the abolishment of the monarchy. Upon entering office, Dupont de l’Eure was a few days short of his 81st birthday, so he delegated part of his duties to the Minister of Foreign Affairs Alphonse de Lamartine.
