Le souper de Beaucaire was a political pamphlet written by Napoleon Bonaparte in With the French Revolution into its fourth year, civil war had spread across France between various rival political factions. Napoleon was involved in military action, on the government’s side, against some rebellious cities of southern France. It was during these events, inthat he spoke with four merchants from the Midi and heard their views.
As a loyal soldier of the Republic he responded in turn, set on dispelling the fears of the merchants and discouraging their beliefs. He later wrote about his conversation in the form of a pamphlet, calling for an end to the civil war. With powerful members, such as Maximilien Robespierre and Georges Dantonthe Jacobin Cluba French political party established inat the birth of the revolution,  managed to secure control of the government and pursue the revolution to their own ends, culminating in a ” Reign of Terror “.
Its repressive policies resulted in insurrection across much of France, including the three largest cities after Paris, namely Lyon, Marseille and Toulon, in the south of France. Citizens in the south were opposed to a centralised government, and to the decrees of its rule, which resulted in rebellion. Prior to the revolution France had been divided into provinces with local governments.
In JulyCaptain Napoleon Bonaparte, an artillery officer, was placed under the command of General Jean-Baptiste Carteaux to deal with rebels from Marseille situated in Avignonwhere army munitions required by the French Army of Italy were being stored. They killed thirty citizens in cold blood during the attack before capturing the town and army supplies.
He visited Beaucaire, across the river from Tarascon, which had been holding an annual fair. That evening Napoleon and the four merchants discussed the revolution, subsequent rebellions, and their consequences. Speaking as a pro-Republican, Napoleon supported the Jacobin cause, and explained the benefits of the revolution, whilst defending Carteaux’s actions in Avignon.
One of the merchants from Marseille expressed his moderate views regarding the revolution, and reasons for supporting civil war against a central government. The merchant stressed that Marseille did not fight for the Royalist cause, but opposed the nature of the Convention itself, condemning its decrees and deeming the execution of citizens as unlawful.
Napoleon concluded that the people of Marseille should reject counter-revolutionary ideals and adopt the constitution of the French Republic in order to end the civil war and allow the regular army to restore France. Following their conversation the group drank champagne until two in the morning, paid for by the Marseillais merchant.
Shortly after the events, possibly on the 29 July whilst still in Beaucaire, Napoleon wrote a political pamphlet titled Le souper de Beaucaire The supper at Beaucaire in which a soldier speaks with four merchants and, sympathetic to their opinions, attempts to dissipate their counter-revolutionary sentiments. The pamphlet was read by Augustin Robespierrebrother of Maximilien Robespierre, who was impressed by the revolutionary context. He soon became recognised for his political ambitions by a Corsica-born politician, and family friend, Christophe Salicetiwho arranged to have it published and distributed.
He also states, “It was during my absence from France that Bonaparte, in the rank of ‘ chef de bataillon ‘ [major], performed his first campaign, and contributed so materially to the recapture of Toulon.
Of this period of his life I have no personal knowledge, and therefore I shall not speak of it as an eye-witness. I shall merely relate some facts which fill up the interval between andand which I have collected from papers which he himself delivered to me.
Among these papers is a little production, bexucaire ‘ Le Souper de Beaucaire ‘the copies of which he bought up at considerable expense, and destroyed upon his attaining the Consulate. Napoleon — Napoleon Bonaparte was a French military and braucaire leader who rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the French Revolutionary Wars.

Intractable differences with the British meant that the French were facing a Third Coalition byin beaucsire, the Fourth Coalition took up arms against him because Prussia became worried about growing French influence on the continent. Napoleon quickly defeated Prussia at the battles of Jena and Auerstedt, then marched the Grand Army deep into Eastern Europe, France then forced the defeated nations of the Fourth Coalition to sign the Treaties of Tilsit in Julybringing an uneasy peace to the continent.
Tilsit signified the high watermark of the French Empire, hoping to extend the Continental System and choke off British trade with the European mainland, Napoleon invaded Iberia and declared his brother Joseph the King of Spain in The Spanish and the Portuguese revolted with British support, the Peninsular War lasted six years, featured extensive guerrilla warfare, and ended in victory for the Allies.

He didnt really take to them, however, as early as age 12, he had already acquired the skills to become a leader.
