Loved and despised, venerated and feared for nearly two decades, Napoleon Bonaparte strode the world stage like a colossus. Framed by the grand sweep of world events, the series charts both his dramatic rise to power as Emperor of France, and his bitter final years spent in exile on the tiny, remote island of St. Helena, doomed to relive all that was and all that could have been.
