Bolingbroke's role in disseminating republicanism and the commonwealth tradition ideas in France has never been fully explored. This chapter focuses on this neglected aspect of Bolingbroke's influence in France. In particular, it pays attention to Bolingbroke's associates at the Club de l'Entresol, many of whom were struggling with similar questions and coming up with similar solutions to his, and to two of his French acquaintances, Henri de Boulainvilliers and Montesquieu, both of whose ideas are such that they could even be described as proponents of a French version of the commonwealth tradition.
