  •  Georges Danton   was a popular leader of the French Revolution. He was outspoken, and  adored rallying people in times when it was most needed.  Maximilien Robespierre also believed this, but on the contrary, he believed everyone who was against the revolution should be disposed of.
  • Robespierre believed that everyone who was opposed to the revolution was to be executed, as they were about to behead Danton. 
  • Napoleon Bonaparte was a skilled military leader for France. He was the head of the government for a period of time in 1799, and he began a series of wars, which he planned very well. In 1804, he crowned himself as France's emperor. He decided to spread his rule across Europe, and stopped when he was sent to St. Helena. This is where he died in 1821. Many thought he was a good ruler, yet he was egotistical.
