The Directory, the five-man bunch that had represented France since 1795, offered to let Napoleon lead an attack of England. Napoleon attempted to reestablish strength to post-progressive France. He unified the administration; initiated changes in such territories as banking and instruction; bolstered science and expressions of the human experience; and looked to improve relations between his system and the pope (who spoke to France's fundamental religion, Catholicism), which had endured during the upset. One of his most noteworthy achievements was the Napoleonic Code, which streamlined the French legitimate framework. In 1802, an established change made Napoleon first diplomat forever. After two years, in 1804, he delegated himself head of France.
