List of people associated with the French Revolution

This is a partial list of people involved in the French Revolution. It includes both supporters and opponents of the revolution.

For a list of groups and factions, see Glossary of the French Revolution.

Inevitably, many individuals here played multiple roles. For example, the Bonapartist General Pierre Choderlos de Laclos was an active Jacobin and associated, to some degree with both the Girondists and the Montagne. (He was also a prominent author.) As a rule, the best place to clarify these complexities is in the article on the individual in question.
