Most historians agree that Napoleon Bonaparte, who was heavily involved in the anti-clerical French Revolution, was an atheist. For one thing, he claimed that “all religions have been made by men”. A brilliant military conqueror, who set Europe afire with his military campaigns, he was also an immense egoist who staged a coup and declared himself Emperor.
He dishonestly ignored international treaties and conventions, seeking undisputed rule throughout Europe. He plundered conquered territories, looting them of their archaeological artefacts and artistic treasures.
For this and other reasons, historians generally consider him a tyrant and usurper. His seventeen years of rule resulted in the bankruptcy of France, loss of many of her territories, six million dead across Europe and enormous economic setback in just one generation.
Well done, Napoleon Bonaparte, atheist.
