Napoleon (Napoleon Bonaparte)


(1769 – 1821) A French military general and political leader who rose to prominence in the French Revolution, becoming the ruler of France as First Consul of the French Republic, and then Emperor of the French and King of Italy under the name Napoleon I. His legal reform, the Napoleonic Code, has been a major influence on many civil law jurisdictions worldwide, but he is best remembered for his role in the wars led against France by a series of coalitions, the so-called Napoleonic Wars. Due to his success in these wars, often against numerically superior enemies, he is generally regarded as one of the greatest military commanders of all time, and his campaigns are studied at military academies worldwide.
