Napoleon betrayed the goals of the French Revolution. The first example that proves Napoleon betrayed the goals of the French Revolution is he did not allow freedom of religion. “One area where Napoleon disregarded changes introduced by the French revolution was religion” (Beck 230). One goal of the French revolution was to have freedom of religion to all, including the Jews. Despite the revolution’s attempt to have freedom of religion in France Napoleon an agreement with the pope. The agreement acknowledged the church but did not let them fully participate in any national affairs. The fact that Napoleon went back to the Catholic Church despite the goal of freedom of religion proves that Napoleon betrayed the goals of the French Revolution. The second Example that Napoleon betrayed the goals of the French Revolution is he made himself emperor of France. “In 1804, Napoleon decided to make himself emperor… the new emperor took the crown from the pope and placed it on his own head… Napoleon signaled that he was more powerful than the church” (Beck 231). One goal of the French Revolution was have a limited monarchy. With all of the countries Napoleon was conquering, he was gaining more and more power by the minute. Because of all of how powerful Napoleon had become he thought it was only fitting to crown himself emperor of France. Despite all of the fighting and work of the revolution to establish a limited monarchy Napoleon took absolute power and basically made himself the new king of France. Napoleon crowning himself emperor and taking absolute power of France proves that Napoleon betrayed the goals of the French Revolution. The final example that proves Napoleon betrayed the goals of the French Revolution is he increased the debt of France. “Napoleon made a… costly mistake… Napoleon lost 300,000 men during this Peninsular War… These loses weakened the French Empire” (Beck 235). One goal of the French Revolution was to resolve the financial crisis in France. At this

Napoleon complex, or "short man syndrome", is a pejorative slang term describing a type of psychological phenomenon which is said to exist in people, usually men, of short stature. It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behaviour, and carries the implication that such behaviour is compensatory for the subjects' stature.
