2 Bonaparte was born in 15 August 1769 in Corsica. At the age of 30 he managed to become the emperor of France. After series of conflicts with all the major European powers France secured a dominant position in Europe. In order to rule the kingdom he had formed he gave governing positions to his friends and family. His struggles unfortunately went in vain as after his defeat against Russia, his army was severely damaged which made it easy for the European forces to tear down everything Napoleon tried to achieve in his life. So after the fall of his empire Bonaparte was exiled. In 1814 he returned to the political scene but was again defeated at the Battle of Waterloo in June In 5 May 1821 he died of stomach cancer on the island of Saint Helena, where he was imprisoned for six years by the British.

5  The Napoleonic code was adopted throughout much of Europe, though only in the lands he conquered, and remained in force after Napoleon's defeat.The Code still has importance today in a quarter of the world's jurisdictions including in Europe, the Americas and Africa.Napoleon reorganised what had been the Holy Roman Empire, made up of more than a thousand entities, into a more streamlined forty-state Confederation of the Rhine, this provided the basis for the German Confederation and the unification of Germany in The movement toward national unification in Italy was similarly precipitated by Napoleonic rule. So The Napoleonic code surely is important.

6 In January 1804, the police uncovered an assassination plot against Napoleon, sponsored by the Bourbon, former rulers of France. In return Napoleon ordered the kidnapping of Louis Antoine, Duke of Enghien, in violation of neighbouring Baden's sovereignty.

On 26 May 1805 at Milan Cathedral, Napoleon was crowned king of Italy. In January 1804, the police uncovered an assassination plot against Napoleon, sponsored by the Bourbon, former rulers of France.

7 Napoleon's masterful use of propaganda contributed to his rise to power, legitimated his regime, and established his image for posterity. Strict censorship, controlling every aspect of the press, books, theater, and art, was only part of his propaganda scheme, aimed at portraying him as bringing desperately wanted peace and stability to France. The memory of Napoleon in specific countries is highly favorable, for his support for independence and opposition to Russia, his legal code, the abolition of serfdom, and the introduction of modern middle class buraucracies.

8 In February 1821, his health began to fail rapidly. He died two days later, after confession of Father Ange Vignali. In his will, he had asked to be buried on the banks of the Seine, but tragically his last wish was not fulfilled and moreover his tomb was left nameless. In 1840 Napoleon's remains were returned to France. Then in 1861, after a long tour around France, Napoleon's remains were put in a sarcophagus placed in the crypt under the dome at Les Invalides.
