GEORGES ANTOINE CHABOT, known as CHABOT DE L'ALLIER (1758-1819), French jurist and statesman, was president of the tribunal of Montlucon when he was elected as a deputy suppleant to the National Convention. A member of the council of the Ancients, then of the Tribunate, he was president of the latter when the peace of Amiens was signed. He had a resolution adopted, tending to give Napoleon Bonaparte the consulship for life; and in 1804 supported the proposal to establish a hereditary monarchy. Napoleon named him inspector-general of the law schools, then judge of the court of cassation. He published various legal works, e.g. Tableau de la legislation ancienne sur les successions et de la legislation nouvelle etablie par le code civil (Paris, 1804), and Questions Iransitoires sur le code Napoleon (Paris, 18og).
