Napoleon: Hero or villain? EL
Napoleon Bonaparte in my opinion was half villain half hero. While defiantly one of the most influential people in the 19th century, he did leave his people poor as they funded his ever-expanding conquest. He did led France to successful campaigns against the first and second coalitions arrayed against France. I believe that he was a hero in the way that he conducted his warfare but i also believe that the way he pressured his people and also grew to be power-hungry suggests that he was also a villain.
