 Adolphe Thiers - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
He was replaced as Provisional President by Patrice MacMahon, duc de Magenta, who became full President of the Republic, a post Thiers had coveted, in 1875 when a series of constitutional laws officially creating the Third Republic were enacted.
He ranked as one of the Radical supporters of the new dynasty, in opposition to the party of which his rival François Guizot was the chief literary man, and Guizot's patron, the duc de Broglie, the main pillar.
On April 27 a contested election in Paris, resulting in the return of the opposition candidate, Barodet, was regarded as a grave disaster for the Thiers government, and that government was not much strengthened by a dissolution and reconstitution of the cabinet on May 20.

 The Irish President of France
MacMahon was a monarchist, but he realized that the vacuum of power was splitting the nation terribly, as well as weakening it.
MacMahon oversaw the creation of the new government, with a Chamber of Deputies, which was elected by the public, and a Senate, which was selected by the provincial governors.
MacMahon was remembered after his death with the naming of a major Paris boulevard in his honor, the Rue de MacMahon.

 Third French Republic
In 1871, the throne was offered to the Comte de Chambord, alias Henry V, the Legitimist pretender to the French throne since the abdication of Charles X, who had abdicated in favour of him, in 1830.
By the late 1870s, with public opinion swinging heavily in favour of a republic, the President of the Republic, Patrice MacMahon, duc de Magenta, himself a monarchist, made one last desparate attempt to salvage the monarchical cause by dismissing the republic-orientated prime minister and appointing a monarchist duke to office.
MacMahon himself resigned in 1879, leaving a seriously weakened presidency, so weakened indeed that not until Charles de Gaulle eighty years later did another President of France unilaterally dissolve parliament.

 Head of State   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-09-17)
In Charles de Gaulle's words, describing the role he envisaged for the French president when he wrote the modern French constitution, a head of state should embody "the spirit of the nation" to the nation itself and to the world: une certaine idée de la France.
As the above quote by Charles de Gaulle indicates, one of the most important roles of the modern head of state is being a symbolic national symbol of the nation.
Some may consider the Governor-General as the de facto head of state of a country as the monarch rarely exercises the reserve powers of the crown.

On the 27th of the same month a contested election in Paris, resulting in the return of the opposition candidate, M. Barodet[?], was regarded as a grave disaster for the Thiers government, and that government was not much strengthened by a dissolution and reconstitution of the cabinet on May rpth.
The president declared that he should take this as a vote of want of confidence; and in the debates which followed a vote of this character (though on a different formal issue, and proposed by M. Ernoul[?]) was carried by 16 votes in a house of 704.
