FROM THE REVOLUTION THROUGH THE JULY MONARCHY (1789-1848)
The revolutionary government confiscated property from the church and aristocrats that would be subdivided and developed in the 19th century. When not fighting his many wars, Napoleon I improved the infrastructure of Paris and built triumphal arches, victory columns and temple-like porticoes emulating the architecture of imperial Rome.
