This is a story of parallel lives and their unique impacts on the course of history. It is a story of two men, Napoleon Bonaparte and Ludwig Van Beethoven; whose intersecting lives were both influenced by and greatly influential to the revolutionary era of the late 18th century and early 19th century.

We will explore their contrasting approaches to revolution and how they changed the modern world, continuing to do so even today.
