Historical background



Louis-Napoleon was elected on December 10, 1848 as the first President of the Second Republic. He did not have the right to run again in 1852. Louis-Napoleon decided to make a coup planned for December 2, 1851, the anniversary of the coronation of the Eagle and the commemoration of the Battle of Austerlitz. The coup is ratified by a plebiscite on December 21 with more than 7.5 million YES and only 640,000 NO. Victor Hugo went into exile on December 12. The following year, he will publish "Napoléon le Petit" which will earn Louis-Napoleon, who has become Napoleon III in the meantime, this famous sentence: "Napoleon le Petit by Victor le Grand".
