Napoleon Bonaparte: why the commemoration of the bicentenary of his death is controversial

Published on :

France will commemorate Wednesday, the bicentenary of the death of Emperor Napoleon I, who died on May 5, 1821 in Saint Helena. The Head of State Emmanuel Macron will speak on August 5 at the Institut de France, before laying a wreath at the Invalides, a commemoration that is not unanimous. Ajaccio, Napoleon’s hometown in Corsica, has announced the cancellation of a large part of the festivities due to the Covid-19 health crisis.

A program prepared by Aziza Nait Sibaha, Mohamed Chenteur and Lamiaa Maniar.
