What was the important aim of setting up Directory? What was the final outcome after appointing the Directory?
Answer: After the fall of Jacobin government, the two elected legislative Council appointed an executive of five members called Directory.
The main objective of the directory was to work as a safeguard against the concentration of power in a one-man executive as under the Jacobins.
However, the Directors often clashed with the legislative councils, who then sought to dismiss them.
The political instability of the Directory paved the way for the rise of a military dictator, Napoleon Bonaparte.
