L'Antijuif was launched on 21 August 1898 as a daily in competition with La Libre Parole, with the financial support of the Duc d'Orléans and other substantial donations from individual royalists, such as Boni de Castellane.[2] The newspaper established headquarters at 51 rue de Chabrol [fr] in Paris in April 1899.[1]

The publication ceased with the imprisonment of Guérin—who defied arrest for five weeks at the newspaper's headquarters—for planning a coup d'état against the republic (alongside Paul Déroulède).[3] The Ligue launched a successor periodical, Le petit antijuif de l'est, in 1900.[4]
