Historical background

Born on 15 August 1769 in Corsica, Napoleon Bonaparte came from a family of notables, although quite modest. Five years later, in 1784, he joined the “École Militaire Supérieure” in Paris where he completed his studies.

He began his military career in 1785, a career that would be crowned with success. In particular, the Italian campaign, his greatest feat of arms so some say. On his return from Italy, Napoleon was sent to Egypt by the government in power at the time.

This campaign was for the Directory a convenient opportunity to get rid of Napoleon, who increasingly concerned them. On 23 August 1799, Napoleon discreetly left Egypt to return to France to prepare his coup against the Directory.

Despite various unforeseen events, Napoleon will be appointed First Consul. His time at the consulate marked the appearance of new French institutions such as the “Banque de France” and the “Cour des Comptes”.

Napoleon also wrote the Civil Code and established the Legion of Honour.

The Empire

On 2 December 1804, Napoleon crowned himself emperor in Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. The main reason of this corronation is the protection of the power and with it, the title of the emperor considered as hereditary. The most important one is to protect the current power. Indeed, under this imperial regime, the title of emperor is hereditary.

The death of Napoleon would therefore not mean the death of the empire. It was also a way for him to deal as an equal with the European monarchs of the time. Pope Pius VII was present at the coronation, giving to the ceremony a divine character.

The abdications

On 31 March 1814, the alliance of the United Kingdom, the Russian Empire, the Kingdom of Prussia and the Empire of Austria took Paris and forced Napoleon to abdicate. He was then exiled to the island of Elba, which he left at the beginning of 1815 to return to the continent to regain power.

Although the return was intended to be peaceful, the allies were strongly opposed to the emperor's return.
On 18 June 1815, they sent troops to Belgium where the famous battle of Waterloo took place.

Following this new defeat, Napoleon abdicated for the second and last time. He is sent into exile on Saint Helena, a small island lost in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean.

Saint Helena

Exiled on this small rock, the end of the emperor's life was not glorious. He lived on Saint Helena with a few faithful followers but avoided leaving his property at Longwood, being constantly watched by Sir Hudson Lowe.

On the island, his health continued to deteriorate. On 5 May 1821, at 5.49 pm, Napoleon Bonaparte died at the age of 51. To this day, the exact causes of his death are still unknown, cancer, poisoning, these uncertainties are part of his legend.

After his death, Sir Hudson Lowe said: "Gentlemen, he was England's greatest enemy and mine too; but I forgive him everything. At the death of so great a man, one must feel only deep sorrow and regret."

His grave

On 9 May 1821, Napoleon was buried in Saint Helena, in the Geranium Valley.

Following the refusal of the English to repatriate his body, he was laid to rest in a tomb with no inscription. It was not until 1840 that the emperor's body was repatriated to France to be buried in the place we know today.

Napoleon Bonaparte lies in his tomb under the dome of the Invalides in Paris. A majestic tomb resting on a green granite base.
