what did you list in part 1?
In this room you will have the opportunity to choose five qualities you think are essential to a good leader and apply them to a famous historical figure, Napoleon Bonaparte. Perhaps you have read about Napoleon in the past or viewed a movie about his life. You may have seen him referred to in advertisements or heard about him in a passing conversation. What does history say about Napoleon, and what are your thoughts about the famous French Emperor? You will answer this question as you revisit the qualities of leadership. In 1769, Napoleon Bonaparte was born on Corsica, an island off the west coast of Italy. Corsica had become a French possession only months before Napoleon's birth, thus making Napoleon's nationality French. Born of humble beginnings, Napoleon was the second of eight children. As a child, he was stubborn and difficult to manage. His parents sent him first to an all girls' school in hopes he would become less obstinate and more reserved. His temperament did not, however, appear to change. Later he gained a great appreciation for education during his attendance at a Jesuit school. He had a thirst for knowledge and applied much of his reading to great military strategies. As a soldier during the French Revolution, he fought against enemies of France, and when a mob from Paris tried to attack members of the French National Convention, Napoleon came to the aid of the Convention members. As a reward, he was made a general and given command of the French armies in Northern Italy. He took French troops into Egypt to destroy the British trade route to the Middle East, but his efforts were unsuccessful. He left many of his troops in Egypt as he returned to Paris in an effort to take over as ruler of France. His military exploits had made him popular with the people, and in a coup d'etat (sudden take-over), Napoleon did indeed become Emperor. While in Egypt, some of his soldiers came across a large stone with Egyptian symbols. The stone, later named the Rosetta Stone, turned out to be the key to Egyptian writing. A French scholar named Jean Champollion deciphered the symbols and unlocked much of Egyptian history. This is sometimes referred to as a "chance" occurrence and is often viewed as one of the most important finds of modern times. Napoleon remains an enigma, or a puzzle, even today. History reports his many successes for France, but often criticizes the hardships he created for the rest of Europe and the World.
