|Napoleon leaving Elba|
Napoleon returned triumphantly to Paris on March 20 displacing the reigning king. His return to power will only last a hundred days until his defeat at Waterloo and his subsequent abdication on June 22 . The Emperor was once again sent to exile, this time in faraway Saint Helena, an island on the Atlantic Ocean and over 1000 miles from the coast of Africa. He was never to return to France alive.
