    A huge art exhibition in the French town of Arras focuses on the legacy of Napoleon Bonaparte, who ruled France and much of Europe more than 200 years ago.

    The exhibition, featuring rare artwork, aims to shed a more positive light on a leader who, in recent years, has been seen by some French citizens as a tyrant, rather than a national hero.
