After Paris was conquered by the allied coalition, Napoleon was forced to resign in 1814 and was exiled to the Island of Elba. On March 20, 1815 he mustered a force and returned to France to reestablish himself as emperor, yet after his 100-day rule, he was decisively defeated at the Battle of Waterloo. He was sent into exile on the remote island of St. Helena, where he died six years later. As one of the most celebrated figures in history, Napoleon revolutionized military organization and training and brought about reforms that permanently influenced civil institutions in France and throughout Europe.
