Talleyrand was the Minister of Foreign Affairs for Napoléon and a key diplomat in Europe at the time. He was famous for his skills as a political operative and his ability to represent his own interests and to accumulate wealth. Usually a perceptive judge of character, Napoléon never realized the extent of Talleyrand’s disloyalty and deception.
