What if you were a young woman married to a man 50 years older than you? You live in a small country that had repeatedly been invaded and partitioned off to other countries. One day, the most powerful man in the world, the Emperor Napoleon, asks you to be his lover. He tells you that if you agree, he will look favorably on your country's quest for independence. And then all the powerful men in your country ask you to agree to Napoleon's proposal for the sake of your country. What would you do? What would you advise your sister, your daughter, or your wife to do in this situation? This movie describes the relationship between Napoleon Bonaparte (1769 - 1821) and his "Polish Wife" Marie Walewska.

Learning Guide Excerpt
To give you a sense of how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers as lesson plans and by parents to supplement school curriculum or for homeschooling, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Conquest.
Napoleon Bonaparte was not only a great general who dominated Europe, but in the countries that he ruled, he established the Napoleonic Code. These laws introduced many of the reforms of the French Revolution: abolishing feudalism and serfdom, permitting universal male suffrage, and establishing a bill of rights that included freedom of religion (except in Spain)
The Learning Guide to the film Conquest contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
