On March 20, 1815, Napoleon Bonaparte entered Paris triumphantly and began his "Hundred Days" rule before his eventual defeat at the Battle of Waterloo.

Two hundred years later, on March 20, 2015, Napoleon will once again return to the Tuileries. Frank Samson, a 47 year old French lawyer from Orléans, will play the role of the Emperor.

To mark the occasion, there will be an historical reenactment of the Emperor's return from his exile in Elba at the Carrousel du Louvre. 30 cavalry, 60 infantryman with fifes and drums, the ambulance of Dr Larrey (Surgeon of the Grand Army) and the Field Kitchen of the Grand Army will be in attendance.

The 200th anniversary of Waterloo will be marked by a two-day re-enactment on the battlefield, just south of Brussels, with 5,000 soldiers, 300 horses and 100 cannon on June 18.

The re-enactment will take place at the Arc de Triomphe at the Louvre Carrousel.
