Georges Lefebvre (6 August 1874–28 August 1959) was a French historian, best known for his work on the French Revolution and peasant life. He coined the term "history from below", which was later popularised by the British Marxist Historians. Among his most significant works was the 1924 book Les Paysans du Nord pendant la Révolution française ("The Peasants of the North During the French Revolution”), which was the result of 20 years of research into the role of the peasantry during the revolutionary period.
