Napoléon Bonaparte I (15 August 1769 – 9 September 1797, aged 28) was a French military leader during the latter stages of the French Revolution. He led several successful military campaigns for the French Republic, and had helped establish several French client republics in Europe. However, two months before the Treaty of Campo Formio, Napoleon had grown ill and had succumb to his illness a month later. There is a general consensus that Napoleon caught the disease while in battle in the Italian fronts of the revolution.
