Archontology.org: Project History

The origins of Archontology.org date back to 1999 when a web site, the National Politics Web Guide, was launched to accommodate the records on a limited number of political entities. Archived copies of this project are available at the Internet Archive Wayback Machine.
The Web Guide ceased to function in September 2004 when Archontology.org was introduced to serve as a home for the study of historical offices. As of 2015, Archontology.org hosts about 2.5 thousand entries on political entities and office holders, including almost 900 biographies.
