Ajaccio is the island's capital and is best known as the birthplace of Napoleon (1769-1821).
This is a statue of Napoleon in Roman costume on horse-back.
Napoleon is regarded as one of the greatest military leaders of all time due to his longtime success in wars, often against numerically superior enemies.
