Napoleon saw his code, which he founded on that of Justinian (AD 534) as being superior. Justinian committed himself to the idea of the Roman Empire and to the code he wrote for the formation of its legal system, which is still seen in international laws today. Napoleon wanted to be recognised with the Roman emperors and found an empire based on the Roman model. Today we are seeing the Roman Empire in its last phase – the European Union. Ultimately it will be destroyed and replaced by the Kingdom of God, Daniel 2:40-44.
