Napoleon - Our Next Marionette



Our Next MarionetteNapoleon
(Ajaccio 1769 San Elena 1821)

Born on the Mediterranean Island of Corsica, Napoleon came to be known as one of the great historical figures of the modern era.  He was a general for the French Republic during the French Revolution at the end of the 1700s and was proclaimed emperor of France in 1804.

Notoriously egocentric and ingenious, he was especially skilled in the strategy of war and was consequently highly esteemed and feared in the field of battle.  As emperor in times of peace, he also demonstrated administrative and financial acumen.  His expansionist pursuits, however, brought him to a decisive defeat at the Battle of Waterloo at the hands of the English and Prussian armies.  Napoleon was exiled to the island of San Elena where he stayed until his death.
