There are many factors that were part of Napoleons success Some of these were because of his personality and others were completely out of his control Napoleon Bonaparte was born in 1796 on the island of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea In that same year French troops invaded Corsica and crushed a movement for independence According to Larry S Krieger the first factor that influenced Napoleon was completely out of his control When he was ten years old his parents sent him to a military school outside of Paris were his French schoolmates snubbed him as a foreigner Since Bonaparte was cut off from the other students and a social life he devoted all of his time to mastering military tactics When he finished school at sixteen he was already a lieutenant in the artillery Now the second factor outside of his control occurred The French Revolution broke out and Bonaparte as a lieutenant went to fight in the war In October 1795 fate handed the young officer a chance for glory An army of royalists threatened the palace where the National Convention was being held and a government official told Bonaparte to defend the palace When thousands of royalists attacked and were sent into retreat by Napoleons troops he became an instant hero and was dubbed the Savior of the French Republic As a result in 1769 Napoleon was given command as general of the French army against Austria and the Kingdom of Sardonia Within a little while Napoleon had taken control of most of Italy and allowed France to make it a republic dominated by France My research said that after this great feat Napoleon was the most well known general in Europe Napoleon using his political mastery won control of the government on November 9 1799 He sent five hundred of his troops to drive out the elected members of the first chamber of the national legislature
