The French military has been involved in numerous armed conflicts since its formation in 1804 under emperor Napoleon I, and has played a pivotal role in each of them. Its official motto is Valeur et Discipline, or Value and Discipline. Its primary function is to serve the interests of France and the emperor, and its secondary function is the protection of the French people and their interests.
