Bonaparte is a complex character whose life fluctuates between heroism and tragedy, victory and defeat, modern achievements and regressive measures. To know Napoleon is to understand the world in which we live. From the rise to decline of imperial adventures, the nine-section exhibition traces this pivotal period, from key moments in French history to the intimate and romantic life of the emperor.
