As a child he attended the Military Academy. After the end of the revolution, he returned to Corsica, but was forced to flee due to conflict with the Nationalists.

His life was full of wars and battles.

So much so that he was exiled to the island of Elba in the 19th century and forced to renounce his throne.
However, he succeeded in regaining the throne because the monarch named as his successor was completely unpopular. He was Louis XVIII. Bonaparte, however, had to abdicate and was only on the throne for 100 days.

Bonaparte was detained and forced to spend the rest of his life as a prisoner on the island of St. Helena, where he died in 1821.

Because of the way Napoleon was portrayed, many people believe he was small. Napoleon\’s height was not recorded until after his death,and was 168 cm. It was measured in inches, and then there was some error in the conversion. However, the nickname Bonaparte helped. It was thought to mean small in literal translation, but it was intended to indicate the friendship between Napoleon and the soldiers who fought bravely alongside him. Napoleon was always accompanied by men about a meter tall, so you might have thought he was small, too.
