Charles Alexandre de Calonne and Lomenie de Brienne, French statemen, 18th century (1882-1884). Calonne (1734-1802) was Controller-General of Finances under Louis XVI from 1783-1787. France's finances were in a disastrous state and Calonne attempted to bring in a series of taxes and other measures intended to replenish the royal treasury. He failed to have his proposals implemented due to opposition from the assembly of notables and was dismissed, reluctantly, by the king, who supported his proposals. The failure to implement Calonne's financial reforms is seen by some historians as having been an important catalyst in the downfall of the monarchy in the French Revolution. Etienne Charles de Lomenie de Brienne (1727-1794) succeeded Calonne as finance minister in 1787, but was no more able to get reforms accepted than his predecessor and was compelled to resign the following year. Although he swore the civic oath required by the revolutionary constitution after the French Revolution, his status under the Ancien Regime made him the subject of suspicion and he was arrested in 1793 and died in prison the following year.

General Joubert at the Battle of Rivoli, 14th January 1797 (1882-1884)

General Joubert at the Battle of Rivoli, 14th January 1797 (1882-1884). The battle occurred as Austria's General Alvintzy made his fourth and final attempt to relieve the siege of Mantua, which had trapped his colleague General Wurmser and 30, 000 of his men. Switching men and artillery from one crucial spot to the next, Napoleon was able to defeat the assaults in turn before unleashing a charge that swept away the tired Austrians. The next day the pursuit routed Alvintzy who, in two days of fighting, had lost 14, 000 men killed, wounded or captured. Bonaparte had lost 5000, but ensured the surrender of Mantua and the conquest of the important Po valley. Barthelemy Catherine Joubert played an important role in resisting the initial Austrian attack and in the pursuit the following day.

Napoleon in prison at Nice, France, 1794.Artist: J Outrim

Napoleon in prison at Nice, France, 1794. Napoleon Bonaparte (1721-1818) enjoyed a meteoric rise through the ranks of the French Revolutionary army. In 1799 he led a coup to overthrow the government, the Directory, and became first consul and effective dictator of France. In 1804, he declared himself Emperor and embarked on a series of military campaigns across Europe: the Napoleonic Wars. Victories such as Austerlitz and Jena led to France establishing its power across much of the continent. In 1812, however, Napoleon embarked on a disastrous invasion of Russia and defeat at Leipzig in 1813 led to his abdication and exile to Elba. He ecaped in 1815, raised another army, but was finally defeated by Wellington at Waterloo, and was exiled again to St Helena, where he died
