Songs for Napoleon!

Beethoven's 3rd Symphony

Beethoven's 5th Symphony

Symbolic Napoleon

This is a song called "Viva la vida" and it has a slideshow and a few videos embeded into it. I believe that this video is very good because the song has good lyric that I think describe Napoleon well. The pictures are also very accurate and the reenacted videos and very interesting.

This video is basically a summary of Napoleon. It describes his childhood, how he grew up, how he rose to power, what he did for France and his Fall. The video shows pictures of Napoleon in many stages and a few reenactments of incidents that occured.

Quote Corner

"Women are nothing but machines for producing children."

"Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools."

"France has more need of me than I need of France."

"Imagination rules the world."

"Religion is what keeps the poor from murdering the rich."

I find that all of these quotes paint the image of Napoleon in my mind. Some are very powerful and inspirational while others are a bit sexist and rude. All of these things balenced out to create the personallity of the all mighty Napoleon Bonaparte.

This is the official emblem of Napolean. He created it himself and used it to represent himself.

These were one type of the medals Napolean gave out to motivate his soldiers during times of war. He used the popularity of the medals to get what he wanted for his own selfish purposes. It was first used as a tool to preomote himself before he became emperor and then later used them as a sign of victory after battles won.

Symphony 3 by Beethoven was dedicated to Napoleon as he loved that Napoleon shared the same Revolutionary ideas as him. In the fall he soon had second thoughts and dedicated the piece to someone else but because of how popular the piece was he still gave it the name "Bonaparte". It was said by witnesses that whe Napoleon crowned himself emporer Beethoven became so disgusted that he took the title page of the piece and tore it up out of rage. Symphony no. 5 was basically written to express the anger that Beethoven had towards Napoleon. Now that Napoleon had basically taken a step back in revolutionary ways by bringing back monarchy, Beethoven was extremely upset.

The way these two Symphonies show the perspective of a person who started out loving Napoleon and then later went on to hating him is very moving. I think that this describes what Napoleon did in France very well as he started out with good morals but later on let power take over.
