 Napoleon III of France - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

After months of stalemate, President Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte staged a coup and seized dictatorial powers on the symbolic date of 2 December 1851, the exact 47th anniversary of Napoléon I's crowning as Emperor, and also the exact 46th anniversary of the famous Battle of Austerlitz.
