During the summer of 1798, more than thirty thousand French soldiers
disembarked in Egypt commanded by the General Napoleon Bonaparte. His
official mission was the liberation of the country of Nile from three
centuries of Turkish
domain and, also to block the unrestricted navigation of the British
fleet to their Oriental colonies. No one but the young Napoleon had
ever brought scientists to Egypt to study, write and copy all they can
from this marvellous country.
graves, mummies, tunnels, large and grand treasures, and pyramids opened
to them unveiling a new world, very ancient at the same time.
NAPOLEON ARRIVED IN THE RIGHT MOMENT. Certain Islamic sects, and the
heads of the coptic church, were waiting for a leader - half warrior,
half mystic, capable of returning them to their splendorous past.
Although, Napoleon was seeming to chase another purpose beyond political
or religious: he was obsessed with searching for inmortality to be found
in Egypt -the formula that will
guarantee eternal life.
Without proof, Napoleon believed that Jesus of Nazareth had obtained,
in his egyptian exile (depicted by the Gospels)- the same formula. Jesus
resurrected Lazarus and returned from the dead, following a ritual,
that---according to the pharaoh's beliefs--was succesfully applied by
gods and goddess such as Isis and Osiris.
NAPOLEON'S EGYPTIAN SECRET exposed an intrigue of
colossal proportions. Ancient Christians, Nomads, Muslims and descendants
of the builders of the pyramids, have been
confronting each other to get the formula of life. If it was not for
the secret so mighty that the pharaohs gave to Jesus of Nazareth, what
else was Napoleon Bonaparte looking for during his year of campaigns
in Egypt, Syria and Palestine?
plot created by Javier Sierra in the pages of his historic novel will
bring you to see an episode from history with different eyes.
For sure, you will never see Napoleon in the same way again, and you
will never accept an official history as it is...
Although in "NAPOLEON'S EGYPTIAN SECRET" it is very
difficult to separate the historical truth from
the prodigious imagination of it's author, it will be convenient to
clarify that it is rigorously true...
Napoleon Bonaparte, without any reason or justification, in the middle
of his military operations of the conquest of Egypt and Palestine, turn
his heels around and went to the Holy Land, stopping for a night in
Nazareth. It was, as the book tells, the 14th of April of 1799.
Bonaparte spent another night, from the 12th to 13th of August of 1799,
in the interior of the Great Pyramid.
He never wanted to tell his men why he emerged pale and fearful from
the pyramid's interior.
...And so, an astrologer named Bonaventura Guyon (also known as "the
red man from the Tuilleries") who was frequently consulted by Napoleon
during his years in power in French politics was called to help explain
...and Jean Baptiste Prosper Jollois and the baron Edouard Villiers
du Terrage formed part of the scientific committee brought to Egypt
by Bonaparte. It is a historical fact that in August of 1799 they discovered
the tomb of Amenhotep III and that on the 6th of September of the same
year, they abandoned their findings (today catalogued as KV 22) of the
city of Luxor forever. They unified the French troops in El Cairo and
evacuated the pharaohs's land.
