Then goes the period of Revolutions, when a low-brown and low-minded tyrant was permitted to rule with the rod of the most frightful despotism people, whose anxiety for liberty had shortly before rendered them unable to endure the rule of a humane and lawful sovereign. (Sir Walter Scott 1839). And Napoleon rose as an emperor and hungry-power tyrant. Having self-crowned himself as ruler, Napoleon claimed himself as a protector of principles and rules established by the French Revolution (McLynn 2009).Whether Napoleon saved or suppressed the progress made from the French Revolution is debatable question. If his ego and personal agenda had not overtaken him, he may very well have been one of France’s greatest revolutionary leaders ever (in sustaining its principles that is).
