Napoleon artwork

A French politician is reportedly planning on opening a hybrid theme park-museum dubbed "Napeoleonland", in honour of the country's former emperor Napoleon Bonaparte.

ZeeNews reports that one-time minister Yves Jego hopes to build the park on the site of Napoleon's final battle, the Battle of Montereau, which is located south of Paris. In addition to the theme park, the proposals include the construction of a museum, hotel, retail outlets and a conference centre.

Attractions slated for the park include daily recreations of the Battle of Waterloo and the Battle of Trafalgar, as well as a "ski run" through a Russian battlefield upon which many of Napoleon's Grande Armée have perished. Guests would also be able to witness Louis XCI being guillotined.

While Napoleon's major losses will be covered, the park will also celebrate his famous victories. Jego plans to ensure that the park offers a balanced view - helping to attract UK tourists as well as French locals to Napoleonland.
