EVERYTHING FOR AND BY THE PEOPLE
« For the Honour of France, for the sacred interests of Humanity »
(Napoleon the Great, 17th of Ventôse Year VIII – Saturday 8th March 1800)
THE 2nd OF DECEMBER
1804 : Coronation of Napoleon I
1805 : Victory at Austerlitz over the Third Coalition for Napoleon I,
that shall be Napoleon the Great hereafter…
1851 : « Coup d’État » by Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte,
who gives all Frenchmen their vote back.
1852 : Following a plebiscite, Napoleon III officially becomes emperor of the French.
For those who will be present/ taking part in the ceremonies, eg in Paris and Ajaccio this year, don’t forget to mention it to those around you… particularly those who’d like to be there too.
For those who won’t be able to be present, this Facebook event is particularly addressed to you :
– Thanks to internet, you can (on Facebook and elsewhere) add a profil/cover photo commemorating the coronation, Austerlitz, the restoration of universal suffrage (one man = one vote) or the Second Empire.
– And, of course, you can also invite friends for a meal among family and/or friends in honour of the occasion.
