Napoleon Bonaparte (1769 - 1821 a.t.b) was a French military and political leader who successfully led France on the Battle of Trafalgar against the Britannian Empire and Admiral Horatio Nelson. He then proceeded to occupy the British Isles which is either becomes part of the French Empire or has a new government established. That caused the Britannian Imperial Family to be exiled to the Americas, where Washington's Rebellion was recently neutralized, and from there they established the Holy Britannian Empire. In 1815 a.t.b, Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo and ended the possibility of conquering Russia. Napoleon Bonaparte dies on his way back to France, after his defeat at the Battle of Waterloo; although it was never proven, it is rumored that assassins poisoned his food in accordance to Elizabeth III's will. Her last words included the famous line, "I do not forget slights to my honor." His victory in Europe led to the Foundation of the Europia United.
Centuries later, E.U. General Gene Smilas hoped to succeed where Napoleon had failed and become Emperor of Europe, believing that the dictatorship of one skilled man would be more beneficial for Europia and save it from the corruption and money worship of the E.U.'s capitalist elites as well as the expansion of Euro Britannia. However, like Napoleon, Smiles would ultimately fail.
