Calendar of Romulus
The original Roman calendar consisted of ten months (however, the calendar year only lasted 304 days, with 61 days during winter not assigned to any month). The months of Ianuarius and Februarius were added to the calendar by Numa Pompilius in 700 BC.
French Republican Calendar
The French Republican Calendar was introduced (along with decimal time) in 1793, and was similar to the ancient Egyptian calendar. It consisted of twelve months, each divided into three décades of ten days, with five or six intercalary days called sansculottides. The calendar was abolished by Napoleon on January 1, 1806.
The modern Gregorian calendar does not use decimal units of time, however several proposed calendar systems do. None of these have achieved widespread use.
