Napoleon Bonaparte was born August 15 1769 and died May 5 1821  he was
a military and political leader of France and Emperor of the French as
Napoleon I, whose actions shaped European politics in the early 19th
century.
Napoleon was born in Corsica to parents of noble Genoese ancestry and
trained as an artillery officer in mainland France. Bonaparte rose to
prominence under the First French Republic and led successful
campaigns against the First and Second Coalitions arrayed against
France. In 1799, he staged a coup d\'état and installed himself as
First Consul; five years later the French Senate proclaimed him
emperor. In the first decade of the nineteenth century, the French
Empire under Napoleon engaged in a series of conflicts—the Napoleonic
Wars—involving every major European power. After a streak of
victories, France secured a dominant position in continental Europe,
and Napoleon maintained the French sphere of influence through the
formation of extensive alliances and the appointment of friends and
family members to rule other European countries as French client
states.
The French invasion of Russia in 1812 marked a turning point in
Napoleon\'s fortunes. His Grande Armée was badly damaged in the
campaign and never fully recovered. In 1813, the Sixth Coalition
defeated his forces at Leipzig; the following year the Coalition
invaded France, forced Napoleon to abdicate and exiled him to the
island of Elba. Less than a year later, he escaped Elba and returned
to power, but was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo in June 1815.
Napoleon spent the last six years of his life in confinement by the
British on the island of Saint Helena. An autopsy concluded he died of
stomach cancer, though Sten Forshufvud and other scientists have since
conjectured that he was poisoned with arsenic.
Napoleon\'s campaigns are studied at military academies the world over.
While considered a tyrant by his opponents, he is also remembered for
the establishment of the Napoleonic code, which laid the
administrative and judicial foundations for much of Western Europe.
Here Napoleon is shown on his horse an is known as \"Napoleon Crossing
the Alps\". His horse rears high in the air and his cape flows through
the wind pushing it over his body giving him a regal and  majestic
look. This sculpture is a one of a kind and is definitely and
impressive piece of work. This sculpture was cast using the \"Lost Wax
Method\" and has a  brown patina and is signed . It is mounted on  a black marble base
and is sure to draw an eye of all those around. It makes a great gift
for a history buff or a political lover!
