This year marks the bicentenary of Napoleon’s death.
He was being held a prisoner on the Atlantic island of St Helena. He never came to terms with his defeat and fall from power waging a sullen campaign against his English ‘gaolers’. His health deteriorated and he died on the island in 1821.
We shall take the opportunity to look in some depth at his final years, answering such questions as to how well or badly he was treated and what actually killed him.
