Category:Coups d'état

English: A coup d'état (plural: coups d'état)—also known as a coup, putsch, or overthrow—is the sudden, extrajudicial deposition of a government, usually by a small group of the existing state establishment—typically the military—to replace the deposed government with another body; either civil or military. A coup d'état succeeds if the usurpers establish their dominance when the incumbent government fails to prevent or successfully resist their consolidation of power. If the coup neither fully fails or achieves overall success, the attempted coup d'etat is likely to lead to a civil war.
Français : Un coup d’État est un renversement du pouvoir par une personne investie d'une autorité, de façon illégale et souvent brutale. On le distingue d'une révolution en ce que celle-ci est populaire. Le putsch est un coup d'État réalisé par la force des armes.
