PrEsentation of THE Souvenir Napoléonien
The Souvenir Napoléonien was created on 27 December 1937 and is the largest Napoleonic association in Europe, registered as a non-profit on 5 November 1982.
Throughout France and in certain European countries, the Souvenir Napoléonien organises various cultural events, always with the desire to share and enjoy the history of the First Empire and the Second Empire. These two periods form the foundations of modern France, in terms of institutions, law, education, culture, town planning and landscape art. Study of all areas contributes to an understanding of France’s specific identity and its place in Europe and the world.
With to its delegations spread throughout France and Europe, the association Le Souvenir Napoléonien represents 83 years of research and voluntary activities related to the two Empires covering more than a century of French history.
