Napoleon Bonaparte was an undeniably strong leader of France, however he was not truthful to his inferiors who gave him his power.

Napoleon Bonaparte, self-proclaimed Emperor of France and the famous military leader often mocked for his, allegedly, short stature and bad temper.

Napoleon Bonaparte was a dominating presence during his time as Emperor of France. If one were to look at him from a packaged point of view, it would appear he was in a position to be a very popular and beloved ruler. He was charismatic and extremely ambitious, with the latter trait being his ultimate undoing. It could even be said that he ruled in a similar fashion as Catherine the Great, with a tendency to make decisions in a way that suited his own immediate needs while boasting of his unending desire to provide for others. Although the easy assumption would be to insist failure upon his regime, there were some positives (taking into account the level of disarray he inherited).

On an island, right off the coast of Italy, Napoleon Bonaparte was born on August 15, 1769, and he died on May 5, 1821. Considering France gained Corsica from Genoa only the year before his birth, it is said that Napoleon’s French heritage was by accident (History.com).

During the French Revolution, I fought well for the Republic, helping to defeat the British at Toulon. For my services there, I was made a Brigadier General.
