Questions in History: Did Napoleon betray the French Revolution?

About

Napoleon Bonaparte's seizure of power in France in 1799 is generally seen as bringing a close to the French Revolution. Over the next fifteen years, Napoleon would rule in an increasingly authoritarian fashion, crowning himself emperor and dispensing with all but a façade of popular input into government. Yet can Napoleon really be accused of betraying the principles of the Revolution? This talk with Graeme Callister (York St John University) will discuss how far Napoleon adapted, adopted or abandoned the ideas and ideals of the French Revolution during his decade-and-a-half at the head of France.
