Napoleon surrendered and accept his exile to the remote British island of St. Helena, in south Atlantic, where he died a year later, on May 5, 1821, at the age of fifty-one, of stomach cancer, or according to some accounts, from some gradual arsenic poising. His remains were not returned to France until 1840, when they were interred in Les Invalides in Paris.
