The party was known as the "Republican Party" at the time, but historians have come to use the name "Democratic-Republican" to distinguish it from the modern [[Republican Party]]. Members were also called Jeffersonian Republicans. Modern Democrats trace their origins to the Democratic-Republicans, though there was a hiatus between their collapse in the early 1820s and the emergence of the Democratic Party in the 1830s. The modern Republican Party named itself after this party.
