Napoleon's vision was to spread the ideas of liberty, equality, fraternity throughout a world dominated by kings and unify Europe so there would forever be no more wars. "I wished to found a European system, a European Code of Laws, a European judiciary: there would be but one people in Europe," were Napoleon's words, emulating the idea of a united Europe almost 200 years before the European Union was formed. He also pursued the peace of Europe and stated, "Europe thus divided into nationalities freely formed and free internally, peace between States would have become easier: the United States of Europe would become a possibility." Napoleon knew that one large entity with subdivisions would be far more peaceful than multitudes of separate entities which would constantly have conflict between them due to their differences. Through this vision, Napoleon was a clear representation of an Enlightened Despot, a product of the French Revolution, and most of all a hero.
