Already have an account? Napoleon becoming a tyrant history last edited by Perry Li 9 years, 5 months ago Although Napoleon did a lot of unbelievable stuff and is definitely one of the greatest rulers in history, there is also no doubt that many of his accomplishments were for a selfish, greedy reason.
In this essay, Brian and I will explain why we think Napoleon is a tyrant, and not a hero. Although Napoleon was considered a hero to many people in his time in France, he was a tyrant to everyone else in Europe.
One example that shows this is that he tried to conquer all of Europe, and even parts of Africa i.
Egypt with the lone purpose of becoming the number 1 ruler. His freedom promise was only short lived, as you will see. Napoleon supported the ancien regime; meaning that he published some of those laws in his Napoleonic Code. Also, he failed to improve the conditions of the poor, and focused directly on the middle class people.
In addition, the promises of freedom he made in his code never actually took place. He would use that freedom thought to only increase the morals of his soldiers and win more battles.
Napoleon would fight all that would revolt against him i. This is shown when Napoleon tried to block trades to and from England so that they will run out of moneyand when Russia allowed trade to England, he attacked their capital city. Such thinking is what makes a ruler a tyrant.
Napoleon would also do anything to survive and remain being the emperor of France. In his Egyptian campaign, he secretly fled after his fleet was destroyed by Nelson. Similarly, he fled and left his Grand Army once it has been defeated in Russia.
Furthermore, Napoleon did not allow any free nations to be ruled by native governments. He thought that doing so might cause a revolt, so he himself chose the rulers of those nations which are usually his family members. Napoleon also caused many deaths.
Furthermore, of aroundsoldiers sent into the Russian campaign, only returned home safely.
In addition, Napoleon was a conqueror. The world begged me to govern it. One of the key questions people ask about Napoleon is that if he changed Europe for the better or for the worse. Some of the reasons are already listed above, but the key reasons are that he caused millions of deaths i.
Battle of Waterloo, where hundreds of soldiers lost their livesand the fact that he used the people of Europe to fulfill his own desires. All those examples show why Napoleon made Europe worse.
One of the key mistakes Napoleon made was creating the idea of nationalism.
Nationalism, as explained above, caused WW1 and WW2. But that is not all nationalism did. By creating the idea of nationalism, Napoleon also created religious prosecution of the Jewish people, and many kinds of racism.Napoleon was a tyrant, twisted by his own passions and big ideas, but that doesn’t mean he wasn’t heroic or that he didn’t accomplished any heroic feats.
Although Napoleon seized power, he strived to strengthen his country, and gain a majority of the support, understanding that there aint(sic) no power like the power of the people. Quotes "Women are nothing but machines for producing children." This quote shows how poorly Napoleon thought of women, saying that they were good for nothing but making babies.
Who would have ever thought that the once quiet pig would become the tyrant of Animal Farm? Napoleon, a Berkshire boar, changes considerably throughout Animal Farm by George Orwell.
“Napoleon was a large,rather fierce looking Berkshire boar, Napoleon becoming more and more frustrated of Snowball’s ideas.

It was all mostly propaganda that Napoleon was a tyrant but many people in his early days admired him, and even when they hated him for the wars after , they welcomed him back in in open arms, only to be defeated at Waterloo.
Napoleon's greatest crime, however, is his complete transformation into Jones — although Napoleon is a much more harsh and stern master than the reader is led to believe Jones ever was.
