Napoleon Bonaparte was born on August 15, 1769, in Ajaccio, on the Mediterranean island of Corsica.
He conquered much of Europe in the early 19th century.
Napoleon rapidly rose through the ranks of the military during the French Revolution (1789-1799).
After seizing political power in France in a coup d’état in 1799, he crowned himself emperor in 1804.
Shrewd, ambitious and a skilled military strategist, Napoleon successfully waged war against various coalitions of European nations and expanded his empire.
However, after a disastrous French invasion of Russia in 1812, Napoleon abdicated the throne two years later and was exiled to the island of Elba.
In 1815, he briefly returned to power in his Hundred Days campaign. After a crushing defeat at the Battle of Waterloo, he abdicated once again and was exiled to the remote island of Saint Helena, where he died aged 51.
