Charles Joseph Barthélémy Giraud (20 February 1802 – 13 July 1881) was a French lawyer and politician. He was twice Minister of Education during the French Second Republic.

Early years[edit]

Charles Joseph Barthélémy Giraud was born on 20 February 1802 at Pernes-les-Fontaines, Vaucluse, France. He studied law at Aix-en-Provence, and became professor of administrative science and president of the academy. In 1842 he was appointed inspector-general of the law schools in Paris, and then inspector-general of the board of education. He was vice rector of the Académie française until 1848.[1]

Political career[edit]

Giraud was Minister of Public Instruction in two cabinets in 1851, and was a member of the consultative council.[1] On 26 October 1851 Eugène Corbin, procureur-général at Bourges, was appointed Minister of Justice to replace Eugène Rouher, whose resignation had been accepted.[2] In the same decree Giraud was appointed Minister of Education and Religious Affairs, and was named interim Minister of Justice in Corbin's absence.[3] Corbin did not accept the appointment.[2] On 1 November 1851 Alfred Daviel was made Minister of Justice.[3]

Giraud resigned from the consultative council in August 1852 after the confiscation of the property of the House of Orléans. He then became professor of Roman Law in the faculty of Paris. In 1861 he succeeded Laferriere as inspector general of the judiciary.[1] He died in Paris on 13 July 1881, aged 79.[4]
