When it comes to Napoleon there are two views you can have. He was a hero, a champion of the revolutionary ideals who almost united Europe under one flag. He was a demon, a villain who betrayed the revolution that he came into power through, and he dealt more damage to it than all of the ancien regime combined. Some major figures in European history have had the former opinion, Charles De Gaulle, while others have had the latter opinion, Ludwig van Beethoven. Personally, when I think about what happened before, during, and after the revolution, as well as the basic causes and the core of the revolution, I have to agree with the later opinion despite my deep and heartfelt admiration for both Napoleon and his accomplishments.

Rough Draft A leader can benefit or destroy a nation, as well as lead their country to the top of the ranks or to the very bottom. Napoleon Bonaparte was one of the greatest and most influential leaders in all of history because he ended the French Revolution, reformed french and world politics and expanded his empire all over the globe. The Reign of Terror, a period of time that can be compared to the horrors of the Black Plague or the Holocaust, was swiftly ended by Napoleon Bonaparte, who launched an overthrow of the government and took over as the new leader. The new leader did everything he could to restore France to its former glory. He got rid of any of the fools who opposed him, for he knew they would hold back his great plan of creating a new, better France.
There are many facts that explain why Napoleon was considered one of the greatest leaders in history, but the main reasons why he is regarded as such is because he was helpful, charismatic, brave and brilliant. Napoleon was very charismatic, he was able to charm people and convince them with just a few words. An acceptable example would be in 1815, when he landed in France, a group of soldiers was sent to capture him, but rather than fighting them, he simply unmounted his horse, walked towards the soldiers and said, “If any of you wish to kill your emperor, then here I am”. The soldiers were so beguiled by his statement; they dropped their weapons and began cheering, “Long live the emperor”. This is how he managed to have such a large army at the time, he was able to convince approximately 2.5 million people to join him.
Nicole Beliakov Geography 150 Rise in nationalism in Europe is not a new phenomenon. The history of Europe is marred by two world wars, when nationalism flourished and led to the enormous loss of human lives. During these wars, manifestations of nationalism were especially overt and even obligatory because European governments needed a justification of wars in order to mobilize people, to maintain morale and readiness of citizens to provide labor, resources, and to sacrifice their lives for the cause, and nationalism was a powerful doctrine that provided such justification. After the second world war, to avoid repetition of these tragic events, European nations began their steady advance towards economic and political integration, which culminated in the establishment of the European Union. Presently, the very foundation of the EU is under the threat due to nationalism, which has risen in prominence and popularity in the context of rising inequality, immigration of people of not only different ethnicities but also different religions, economic crises, terrorism, and shortcomings of EU system of governance.
The French revolution is considered to be the most significant and effective event in the history. It changed the lives of many peoples and changed the future.

Napoleon Bonaparte rose to power through a radical republic produced by the french revolution. He was able to do this through his immense military success and the resulting support from the population. He had painted himself to be a war hero, and the public believed it willingly. His subsequent downfall from power fittingly came from his major military losses.

Some examples of dictators are Napoleon Bonaparte, Idi Amin, Julius Caesar and of course Macbeth. They are all real life dictators but this Macbeth is not the same as the real one even though they both did commit similar crimes against humanity.

Macbeth 's actions and ambition was what led him to his downfall.
