    Great leader and master tactician. Notice that he was leading his men and armies in battle from one victory to another while his enemies cowering inside their palaces, thats why he was loved by his men and when he returned to France from his exile they all joined him instead of stopping him from entering Paris. He fought against everyone on all fronts... and won several times. The whole of Europe couldn't deal with him even though they allied against him 5 times or more!
