Napoleon Bonaparte or should I say the "Son of the Revolution", I believe was both a preserver and a destroyer of the French Revolution. In fact, "In a sense, Napoleon brought the revolution to an end in 1799, but he was also a child of the revolution" (Spielvogel 544, 1). Napoleon had helped the French people and the French government in various ways; nevertheless, Napoleon thought that constantly the people owed him. I think that this is how he acted like a child. Napoleon became commander of the French army in 1796 in Italy. Since he was now the commander he was reliable to do what he had to for the French without the people owing him anything. Moreover, from the time he became commander he had fought and won numerous wars beginning with the defeat of the Austrians. After the war that he declared peace with the Austrians in 1797. He not only declared peace with the Austrians, but with several other states and the Catholic Church as well. Napoleon signed the Concordat with the pope of the Catholic Church at the time and by signing the agreement the French government and the Catholic Church would not be enemies any longer. I believe that Napoleon was a destroyer of the revolution also because he had changed the Civil Code to the Code Napoleon. To be specific, "The Civil Code clearly reflected the revolutionary aspirations for a uniform legal system, legal equality, and protection of property and individuals" (Spievogel 547, 1). However, Napoleon's Civil Code was the exact opposite of the Civil Code. Napoleon's Code allowed men to be for the majority more power in their households over their children and wives. The women especially those who were married were treated by their husbands as if they were their private property and that they only belonged to them.
