Louis Napoléon Bonaparte was born in Paris in 1808 and died in 1873 in the UK. He was the nephew of Napoléon 1st who was more of a grandfather to him than an uncle. He played many roles in French politics and had the privilege of being :
He grew up with his mother in Switzerland and in Italy
Between 1832 and 1848 he made several attempts at uprisings, punctuated by spending time in prison or exiled to the United States.
In 1848 he decided to go for election at the legislative elections and then at the presidential elections, the first by a universal male vote in France.
Louis Napoleon was elected for four years by 74.2% of the votes. He was then the first president of the French Republic. At the age of 40, he was the youngest president in the history of France until Emmanuel Macron in 2017
During his mandate he made many visits to the French provinces and became even more popular. He was in constant conflict with the national assembly who abolished the universal suffrage. The overthrow of the government on the 2 December 1851, although bloody, was supported by the public.
In 1852 the imperial dignity is restored, voted by the Consuls and by the people. He then became Napoleon III Emperor of France.
It was from then on that he took part in the development of Les Landes
Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, who became Napoleon III, had only one child, a son with his wife the Empress Eugénie De Montijo. He was called Napoleon Eugénie Louis Jean Joseph Bonaparte, but was more commonly known as Louis Napoleon. He was born in Paris in 1856 and died at the age of 23, in 1879 in South Africa in Zulu land.
