Lord Elgin and the Marbles

William St. Clair

Oxford University Press

Over the first fourteen months after he had landed in November 1799 on the south coast, Napoleon Bonaparte was able to establish himself as the leader of France, bring an end to the rebellion in the Vendée, initiate a new constitution and various economic reforms, and start the foundations for a new legal system. Aside from Turkey and Britain, Bonaparte prevailed over countries that initially opposed France. In January 1801 he tried to focus more on the troops in Egypt and was able to send reinforcements for the force at Toulon by giving authority to Admiral Anteaume. As the British allies were soon on a decline, the British forces opted to proceed with preparations for their expedition to Egypt. This chapter investigates the measures, events, and results brought about by the conquest of Egypt.
