brief introduction of napoleon Bonaparet
 Napoleon Bonaparte (15 August 1769 – 5 May
1821) was a French military and political
leader who rose to prominence during the
latter stages of the French Revolution and its
associated wars in Europe.
when did the napoleon Bonaparet rule?
 From 10 November 1799 until 18 June 1815
with the exception of the Time Out that he
was given on the Island of Elba
h0w &when did the napoleon's rule end?
 In 1814 the French armies were defeated by the combined
armies of the Sixth Coalition (which consisted of Russia,
Prussia, Austria, Sweden, United Kingdom, Spain, Portugal,
Sicily, Sardinia, Saxony, Bavaria, and Wurttemburg) he was
forced to abdicate and was exiled to the Island of Elba (then
in Tuscany, now part of Italy) After living on Elba for 10
months he escaped and returned to France where he
deposed the new French republic and resumed the position
of Emperor. This was considered to be an act of war by the
Coalition countries, and the United Kingdom, Russia,
Austria and Prussia again declared war. Napoleon was
defeated in battle at Waterloo (now in Belgium) on April 18,
1815 and forced to surrender his army and abdicate again
as Emperor of France, he was then exiled to St. Helena in
the South Atlantic where he died on May 5, 1821.
what were their accomplishment as well as
Acomplishment:: He galvanized the French people into a well functioning
government and system from the chaos & anarchy that was occurring
immediately after the French Revolution.
He was a military genius and was able to pull off some stunning military
victories before his final, mind numbingly stupid tactics at the Battle of
Waterloo. The opposing general would often say that Napoleon's ability to
whip up the enthusiasm of his troops just before battle was worth 60,000
additional soldiers.
His expedition into Egypt led to the discovery of the famous Rosetta Stone
which now is displayed at the British Museum. It unlocked the language of
the ancient Egyptians leading to most we presently know about ancient
His rewriting of the laws of France led to the Napoleonic Code of laws which
was then copied by dozens of other countries in Europe & elsewhere
(including the state of Louisiana), and remnants of this legal system still
remain today because it was so well organized, fair, just, and comprehensive
 Failure:
*He was the main reason for chaos in Europe.
* He
destroyed democratic institutions in France, and betrayed
the people who supported him all over Europe because he
convinced them he believed in democracy.
* He directed science toward history, archeology, and
above all; military technology rather than agriculture,
medicine, and manufacturing.
* He was never elected to any office. He was simply a
usurper of power. He never had any legitimacy.
* His unnecessary wars so damaged the French economy
that the French nearly starved in 1804.
