• Conclusion
• Restating thesis, and partition in backwards order
• Intro sentence: Napoleon Bonaparte, who ruled
France in the early 19th century, was a conqueror,
reformer, and emperor.
• Partition: 1. To some degree, Napoleon was a
hero for providing stability and positive reforms
to a country ravaged by a decade of revolution.
2. But Napoleon can also be considered a villain,
as he ruled with absolute power and denied his
people several rights, including freedom of
speech.
• Thesis: Thus, while Napoleon was predominantly
a hero, he was a villain at times in his attempt to
gain complete control of France.
