Was set up by the Constitution of the Year VIII (1800) to debate legislation proposed by other institutions, notably the Council of State and the Legislative Body that proposed bills. Members of the Legislative Body and Tribunate were chosen by the Senate. The site of a small liberal opposition to Bonaparte, the Tribunate unsuccessfully fought some of his innovations. As a result, the Tribunate was purged of its more vocal members in 1802 and then abolished in 1804.
