Born in 1808 in Paris, France, Napoleon III, the nephew of Napoleon I, grew up in exile, the year 1815 marked the end of Napoleon I's reign. However, Napoleon III was determined to regain the French throne. He began his quest in 1832, writing various political and military tracts in an effort to make himself and his ideas known. After a failed coup attempt in 1836, he was exiled again. After the Revolution of 1848, in 1850, Napoleon III was elected president of the Second Republic. He served in that position until 1852 when he was made emperor, a position he held until 1870 when the disastrous Franco-Prussian War led to his capture. He was deposed and sent to England, where he died in 1873.
