16/30.- Chateau of Versailles, Crusades Rooms, picture


The last "king" of France to live in the Chateau of Versailles was Napoleon I. He was born in 1769 in Corsica. He went to a military academy, and when he was only 24, he became official. When he was 30, after a coup, he was proclaimed consul. Five years later, he was crowned Emperor by the Pope. His victorious campaigns throughout Europe and his alliances made of his the biggest Empire in Europe. In 1810 he moved to Versailles. In 1812, after his first serious defeat in Russia, he was forced to exile to the isle of Elba. He could recover part of his power, but in Waterloo he lost all his credit; and was imprisoned for live in the Island of Saint Helena.
