Napoleon Bonaparte (15 August 1769 – 5 May 1821) was a Corsican military and political leader who ruled first as the First Consul of France from 1799 to 1804, then as Emperor from 1804 to 1815. He rose to power amidst the chaos and political turmoil of the French Revolution.
In 1792, Bonaparte infiltrated Palais des Tuileries in order to acquire an Apple of Eden that had been placed in a chest and hidden in a secret vault by Louis XVI of France in the latter's study. Bonaparte successfully retrieved the artifact with the help of the Assassin Arno Dorian. However, Dorian was oblivious to Bonaparte's finding the artifact as the latter quickly pocketed it as soon as Dorian turned around from the letters he was holding. The two then escaped the Palace with the help of Bonaparte's soldiers.
Napoleon was First Consul of France during the last few years of the Haitian Revolution. He saw Toussaint Louverture as a threat, and sent Charles Leclerc to remove him from power, as well as giving him orders to reinstate slavery in the colony.
