    This Act was to restrict the power of the President removing certain office holders without approval of the Senate. It denies the President the power to remove any executive officer who had been appointed by the president with the advice and consent of the Senate, unless the Senate approved the removal during the next full session of Congress. The Amendment was later repealed.

    German and English: from a personal name composed of the ancient Germanic elements theud ‘people, race’ + bald ‘bold, brave’. The English surname represents a learned form, re-created from French Théobald. The usual medieval forms of the name in English and German were Tebald and Tibalt (Old French Teobaud, Tibaut). Compare Dewald and Diebold .
