In the late 1700s, France had 3 social classes: the clergy, the nobles, and the peasants. Peasants paid high taxes and lived impoverished lives whiile nobles lived lavishly.
Let us pray.
God, please grant my family bread to eat.
Foolish peasant, can't feed his family
The Kings and nobles lavish lifestyle put France in big time debt pushing the 3rd Estate to revolt. This allowed Napoleon Bonaparte to make a name for himself as a highly successful general.
VIVE LA FRANCE!
After several successful campaigns, and a spot on the Revolutionary government as a Consul, Napoleon earned enough popularity and power to crown himself Emperor of France.
Napoleon enacted many positive changes to France such as universal education for men and women, a new and fair law code, as well as economic and law code reforms.
Education for all ze people, ze women and ze men!
Despite all of the positives changes Napoleon made, there are several documents that depict Napoleon's mindset as more of a dictator than a leader of free people.
"I will be master everywhere in France and of everything, as long as I have breath in my body."
So, as I have compiled various primary and secondary resources on the topic, it is time to determine: was Napoleon a dictator or a great leader?
