Napoleon’s skillful leadership helped to crush rebellions within France and also greatly expand the territories of France, including a surprising victory over the more powerful Austrian army.

In October 1799, Napoleon returned to Paris after having been in Egypt with his armies to take part in a coup d’ etat, or an overthrow of the government.

In 1804, Napoleon named himself as emperor of France and had himself anointed as such by the Pope.
