Why Is Napoleon Buried at Les Invalides? Episode 135: France, Paris, French Culture, French History

0 page


As you probably know, Napoléon Bonaparte’s importance in French history and life is difficult to over-estimate. Yet, surprisingly, we haven’t talked about Napoleon much on Join Us in France besides in Episode 58, titled Napoleon in Paris. This has everything to do with the fact that, well, it’s a complicated subject, and it is impossible to do it justice without going on and on and on about it and be a little bit more scholarly than ideal for my taste. BUT, Napoleon has left his mark in almost every aspect of French culture and history, so we can’t ignore him. So, let’s start the year 2017 gently by dipping our toes gently into the Napoleon soup and ask a simple question: Why is Napoleon buried at the Invalides?
