(1769 - 1821) French military and political leader who rose to prominence during the latter stages of the French Revolution
* The Napoleonic Code (French: `Code Napoléon`), officially the Civil Code of the French (French: `Code civil des Français`; simply referred to as `Code civil`) is the French civil code established under the French Consulate in 1804 and still in force, although frequently amended.
It was drafted by a commission of four eminent jurists and entered into force on 21 March 1804. The Code, with its stress on clearly written and accessible law, was a major step in replacing the previous patchwork of feudal laws. Historian Robert Holtman regards it as one of the few documents that have influenced the whole world.
