The Chaire Napoléon presents a “study morning” on the theme of “Bonapartism(s)”, co-organised by the Institut Catholique de Vendée (ICES) and the Fondation Napoléon on Friday 27 November 2020, starting at 9:30 am in the Richelieu conference room at ICES.

Speakers: Chantal Prévot, Tom Richard, Peter Hicks, Juliette Glikman and Thierry Lentz.


The Chaire Napoléon continues its exploration of the circumstances and political consequences of Napoleon’s death in a series of study mornings.
