Description:
[EN] A place to record places of interest related to the Bonaparte familly. [FR] Un endoit pour enregistrer des lieux qui ont un rapport avec la famille Bonaparte.
Expanded Description:
[EN] Napoleon is perhaps the most prominent name associated with the Bonaparte family because he conquered much of the Western world during the early part of the 19th century. He was elected as first consul of France on November 10, 1799 with the help of his brother, Lucien Bonaparte, and president of the Council of Five Hundred at Saint-Cloud. He was crowned Emperor of the French and ruled from 1804-1814, 1815.

The Bonaparte family's descendants also include kings of Spain, Naples, Holland and Westphalia, and a second French Emperor, Napoléon III.

The Louisiana Purchase in which the U.S. purchased a large tract of land from France occurred under the reign of Napoleon Bonaparte.

Napoleon III's adventurism in foreign policy is aptly demonstrated by the French intervention in Mexico (January 1862–March 1867) and led to the creation of the Mexican Cinco de Mayo celebration.

Waymarks in this category will record the locations of publicly accessible places and things somehow related to the descendants of Carlo Buonaparte and Maria Letizia Ramolino (which includes Napoleon) and their spouses.

[FR] Napoleon est peut-etre le nom le plus celebre associe avec la famille Bonaparte car il a acquis une notoriété aujourd'hui universelle pour son génie militaire et politique, mais aussi pour son régime autoritaire, et pour ses incessantes campagnes souvent coûteuses, soldées par de graves défaites finales en Espagne, en Russie et à Waterloo, et par sa mort en exil à Sainte-Hélène sous la garde des Anglais.

Des rois de l'Espagne, Naples, la Hollande et la Westphalie et la deuxieme empereur francais, Napoléon III, figurent parmis les descendants de la famille Bonaparte.

Les Waymarks dans cette categorie enregistront des lieux, des monuments, et des objets associes aux descendants de Carlo Buonaparte et Maria Letizia Ramolino (y compris, bien sur, Napoleon) et leurs epoux.
