Napoleon Bonaparte Printable (** for premium members only)

Napoleon Bonaparte (August 5, 1769 – May 5,1821) aka Napoleon I, was French Emperor (1804 – 1815) in the years after the French Revolution. He is known for his legal reforms (the Napoleonic Code) and also for his military leadership during a series of conflicts with his European neighbors. Napoleon was defeated in 1815 by the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo. He spent the rest of his life in exile on the British island of Saint Helena.

BrainyQuote: Napoleon Bonaparte Quotes
What a mixed bag of quotes! Some seem timeless, and others quite archaic. “Imagination rules the world.” “Ability is nothing without opportunity.” “The word impossible is not in my dictionary.” And then there’s this one: “Women are nothing but machines for producing children.”

Louvre: Consecration of the Emperor Napoleon
“In May 1804 he [Napoleon] was proclaimed Emperor, and a coronation ceremony was held on December 2 of the same year at Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris to secure his imperial legitimacy and root his authority in the French monarchic and Catholic tradition.” The complete title of this huge canvas painted by Jacques-Louis David is The Coronation of the Emperor Napoleon I and the Crowning of the Empress Joséphine in Notre-Dame Cathedral on December 2, 1804. It was commissioned by Napoleon himself to glorify the event. To view details of the painting, scroll through the slideshow.

Published by the non-profit Foundation Napoleon, history resources can be found all over the site, but best bets for students are History of the Two Empires and the Kids’ Corner. The Kids’ Corner has fact files for homework help, quizzes, games and animations for kids as young as three. The History section includes timelines, biographies, and a gallery of artwork about both Napoleon I and his nephew Napoleon II, emperor of the Second French Empire (1852 – 1870).
