Napoleon is a famous figure in the world. He once set off an unprecedented storm in Europe, almost unified the European continent. Napoleon was born on Corsica, on this road, experienced countless battles, and finally became the founder and ruler of the first empire. However, he finally did not achieve a desire to unify Europe and was exiled into an island in the ocean.

Corsica is located in the Mediterranean Sea in the southeast of France. It is 170 kilometers from France. The overall area has more than 8,000 square kilometers, and the population is now less than 400,000, which is one of the least populations of the French population.

From a history, Corsica has been living very much, and it has established his own small kingdom, but it is constantly being ruled by Carthard, Romans, Italians, Genoas.

At 1768, the rule of the Kingdom of Jingna, the people of the Kingdom of Genoa, and the people of the island rushed away from the Genoasia in the leadership of their leadership, and established the Corsica Independent Government.

Genoa is in the face of such status, but Genoa has not set it out, but the Treaty is signed with France and selling Corsica to France. France has established a rule of Corsica as a province of land.

The residents of the island have become a French, but they do not agree, constantly resist. The leader of Poly escaped the UK. His deputy enthusiasts have been sincere to the French, this person is the father of Napoleon.

Although Napoleon has become a French, but in his heart like Polyoli, liberate Corsica, do our best to drive away the French, and he has never regarded himself as a French.

Corsica and France language, the customs are very different, so there is no sense of belonging, but because the poor is behind, France is not too care. In short, Corsica has always accompanied by independent movement. Even from time to time, I will assure a secondary assassination, let the French government hurt their brains.

Napoleon was originally a firm anti-law. He also returned to Corsica by the French Revolution. But at the same time, the idol Poly, Napoleon is also coming back. The conflict of the two is increasingly open. Napoleon's practice on Poly British is very dissatisfied, gradually Napoleon became the fanaticism of the French revolution, became a firm pro-law. And he also taking advantage of a variety of situation in the French revolution.

After that, Napoleon is no longer satisfied with the future of Corsica, and his ambition is getting bigger and bigger, and it is not thinking about ruling the entire Europe. To this end, France collided in Europe. However, eventually planted in the cold Russia. After Napoleon returned, it was exiled into a small island in the Mediterranean Elba.

Elba Island is an island in the west sea area of ​​Italy, with more than 200 square kilometers, has more than 30,000 people. It is the third largest island in Italy, and the birthplace of Kesyloa is not far from the birthplace of Napoleon. However, he only stayed here for a year, just won the guard, left the island, and returned to Paris and established a 100-day Dynasty.

It can be only more than three months, Napoleon encounters the Waterloo of his life. This time, Napoleon's opponent can learn from the lesson, the last time Elba is too close to France, facilitates Napoleon escaping. This time, I have to choose a desert island away from the mainland, away from France, and cuts out any of his ideas, and the island of the island outside of the city is undoubtedly the best choice. Napoleon also ended his life on St. Hele Island.

St. Hele Island is 121 square kilometers, in fact, it is not less, and the population is only a few thousand people. This island can be described as an island at sea, which is very far from the mainland.

St. Hele took this name or the Portuguese, because this day is a religious festival named St. Helena. As early as the early 16th century, the Portuguese came here. After all, the water buildings were only winning the month, but there were no residents on the island, and Portugal did not see what the value was there, and finally became the colony of the UK.
