'Napoleon: The Corsican who reshaped France and Europe'

Marking the 200th anniversary of the death of Napoleon Bonaparte, this talk will explore his rise from being a Corsican outsider to being Emperor of France. We will look at how, through military conquest and occupation, Napoleon went on to reshape first France and then Europe.

Monday 3rd May, 6 pm

This event will take place on Zoom (details of the meeting will be sent to you by email before the event)

This event is free for all, but we would appreciate a small donation of £3-£5 to support the Alliance Française Glasgow and its activities (see information below).


We would like to reiterate our sincere gratitude for your loyalty to the Alliance Française Glasgow and to thank you for your understanding of the impact this unprecedented crisis has had on us and our activities.

The Alliance Française Glasgow is a local charity, therefore 95% of its income is generated by your subscription to all its activities. Like all other institutions and individuals alike, we are going to suffer greatly from this crisis and we certainly hope all our students, members and guests will be in a position to continue to attend their lessons as well as take part in our cultural activities, and thus support the Alliance Française Glasgow's staff during this difficult period.

We are organising this event for free, but in order to support the AFG, you can donate here.
