What was the key factor in the demise of Napoleon?

Analysing and evaluating the factors that led to the fall of Napoleon using sources as evidence.

Richard Kennett

"Napoléon à Sainte-Hélène", by François-Joseph Sandmann (Public Domain).

Students will identify the different factors that caused the fall of Napoleon by using sources as evidence. Having identified these factors, students will then discuss how they may be viewed and prioritised by different groups of people. They are then able to arrive at a provisional answer to the question and to consider what other evidence they would like to gather to investigate the topic further.
