Présentation dU Souvenir Napoléonien

The Souvenir Napoléonien, created on 27 December 1937, is the most important Napoleonic association in Europe, an was recognised as being of public utility in France by a ministerial decree of 5 November 1982.

Throughout France and in certain European countries, the Souvenir Napoléonien organises various cultural events, always with the desire to share and enliven the history of the First Empire and the Second Empire. These two periods are the foundations of modern France, whether in terms of institutions, law, education, culture, town planning or landscape art. These are all areas whose study contributes to an understanding of France’s particular identity, but also its place in Europe and the world.

Thanks to its numerous delegations spread throughout France and Europe, the association Le Souvenir Napoléonien represents 83 years of research and voluntary activities around the two Empires covering more than a century of French history.
