Before the French Revolution, the municipality of Paris was headed by the provost of the merchants (French: prévôt des marchands). On 14 July 1789, at the end of the afternoon, following the storming of the Bastille, the provost of the merchants of Paris, Jacques de Flesselles, was shot by the crowd on the steps of Paris city hall. The next day, the first mayor of Paris (French: maire de Paris) was elected.

Mayors of Paris (1789-1871; 1977-present)[edit]

From 1789 , the Mayor of Paris was chosen by the City council until his abolition in 1871, when it was abolished for the President of City Councils office. The office was restored another time briefly in 1848 and in 1870, when was suppressed. Since 1977, the Mayor's office was definitively restored, under provisions of new local administration law, and the Mayor of Paris is chosen by popular election every six years.
