Quest for Empire 3.1

Jun 23, 2021

      Napoleon returns from Egypt to stage the coup d’etat of 19 Brumaire (10 November 1799), seizing control of the French Republic as First Consul. With a dramatic victory over the Austrians in the Battle of Marengo (14 June 1800), the 30-year-old leader’s popularity among the French is assured. Text and narration by Dave Inglehart.
