Napoleon Bonaparte (1721-1818) dissolving the Council of Five Hundred, 1845.Artist: S Freeman

Napoleon Bonaparte (1721-1818) dissolving the Council of Five Hundred, 1845. Napoleon 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.

William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877), British photography pioneer, 1900.Artist: Blechinger

William Henry Fox Talbot (1800-1877), British photography pioneer, 1900. Talbot is best known for his development of the calotype, an early photographic process that was an improvement over the daguerreotype of the French inventor Louis Daguerre. Talbot's calotypes involved the use of a photographic negative, from which multiple prints could be made. Had his method been announced a few weeks earlier, he, and not Daguerre, would probably be remembered as the founder of photography.
