Ideas to remember
• What exactly was the Constitution of the Year VIII and how did it secure power for Napoleon? How well did this constitution work? Why and how did Napoleon change it later? What was the ultimate source of Napoleon's power?
• "Napoleon was no military genius. His victories depended on the weakness and disorganization of his enemies rather than upon his skills as a general." Comment on this statement. Do you agree or disagree? Be specific in your examples.
• Who were the principal personalities and what were the most important problems of the Congress of Vienna? What were the results and why were they significant?
• What were the different areas included in Napoleon's realm? How did Napoleon rule his empire? Did his administration show foresight or did the empire ultimately become a burden which he could not afford?
• Some have said that the greatness of Napoleon was dependent, not on his abilities, but rather on the success of his propaganda. What image did Napoleon want to project of himself, his laws and his empire? Pay special attention here to the art of the period. Why was Napoleon so popular in France? Consider both his foreign and domestic policies.
