Napoleon Bonaparte, born Napoleone di Buonaparte, was a French military leader and political statesman who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led successful campaigns during the Revolutionary Wars. He was the leader of the French Republic as First Consul from 1799 to 1804, then of the French Empire as Emperor of the French from 1804 until 1814, and briefly again in 1815. His campaigns are studied in military schools around the world, and his Napoleonic Code of Laws is the basis for legal systems in many countries.
