Expert Answer:

After the French Revolution, subsequent governments in France struggled to establish law and order and peace in France. When the Jacobian government fell, the wealthy middle class became extremely powerful. After the end of the rule of Robespierre, Directory was formed in France to avoid concentration of powers in few hands. However, the members of Directory fought amongst themselves leading to political instability in France.

Further, the fall of the Bourbon dynasty in France shocked the royal ruling families of Europe who now began to form coalitions with each other to crush the revolutionary forces in France. Napoleon at this time fought bravely and received many promotions from the French government. He took advantage of the political instability and inefficiency of the government and seized power in France. Therefore, the political conditions in France were conducive for the emergence of Napoleon in France. This is the reason that he is also known as the ‘Child of the French Revolution’.
