  1. Here is something for those who claim i don't have subtitles: http://www.wikihow.com/Turn-On-YouTube-Subtitles

  2. Great music and words but grief is not cowardly but a very natural emotion. Still, a great hymn when France was the world's superpower. Too bad for the world that Napoleon didn;t win in the end.

  4. Am I the only one here who thinks that Napoleon deserved to be beheaded and have his head paraded through Berlin?

  6. French's lyrics:

    La victoire en chantant
    Nous ouvre la barrière
    La liberté guide nos pas
    Et du Nord au Midi
    La trompette guerrière
    A sonné l'heure des combats
    Tremblez ennemis de la France,
    Rois ivres de sang et d'orgueil!
    Le peuple souverain s'avance,
    Tyrans, descendez au cercueil.

    La République nous appelle,
    Sachons vaincre ou sachons périr!
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.
    La République nous appelle
    Sachons vaincre ou sachons périr!
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.

    De nos yeux maternels
    Ne craignez pas les larmes
    Loin de nous de lâches douleurs!
    Nous devons triompher quand vous prenez les armes:
    C'est aux rois à verser des pleurs.
    Nous vous avons donné la vie,
    Guerriers, elle n'est plus à vous;
    Tous vos jours sont à la Patrie:
    Elle est votre mère avant nous.

    La République nous appelle,
    Sachons vaincre ou sachons périr!
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.
    La République nous appelle
    Sachons vaincre ou sachons périr!
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.

    Que le fer paternel arme la main des braves
    Songez à nous au champ de Mars
    Consacrez dans le sang des rois et des esclaves
    Le fer béni par vos vieillards;
    Et, rapportant sous la chaumière
    Des blessures et des vertus,
    Venez fermer notre paupière
    Quand les tyrans ne seront plus.

    La République nous appelle,
    Sachons vaincre ou sachons périr!
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.
    La République nous appelle
    Sachons vaincre ou sachons périr!
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.
    Un Français doit vivre pour elle,
    Pour elle un Français doit mourir.

  7. English lyrics :

    Victory sings
    Opens its gate for us
    Liberty guides our steps
    And from North to South
    The horn of war
    Rang the battle hour
    Tremble, enemies of France
    Kings drunk on blood and pride
    Sovereign People comes forth
    Tyrants go down to your graves
     
    The Republic is calling us
    Let's know how to vanquish or let's know how to perish
    A Frenchman must live for her [the Republic]
    For her [the Republic] a Frenchman must die

    Do not fear that our motherly eyes shall weep
    From us begone, cowardly grief!
    We shall triumph when you take up arms
    It is kings who should shed a tear
    We gave you life
    Warriors, it is no longer yours
    All your days belong to the Motherland
    She is your mother more than we are

    The Republic is calling us
    Let's know how to vanquish or let's know how to perish
    A Frenchman must live for her [the Republic]
    For her [the Republic] a Frenchman must die

    May their fathers' blade be placed in the hands of the brave,
    Remember us on the Field of Mars (on the battlefield)
    Baptise in the blood of kings and slaves
    The blade thus blessed by your elders
    And by bringing back home
    Both wounds and virtues
    Return to shut our eyes
    When tyrants are no more

    The Republic is calling us
    Let's know how to vanquish or let's know how to perish
    A Frenchman must live for her [the Republic]
    For her [the Republic] a Frenchman must die

    The fates of Barra and Viala fill us with envy
    They died, but they prevailed
    Cowards crushed by the weight of years never truly knew life
    He who dies for the People has lived
    You are brave, so are we
    Lead us against Tyrants
    Republicans are men
    Slaves are children

    The Republic is calling us
    Let's know how to vanquish or let's know how to perish
    A Frenchman must live for her [the Republic]
    For her [the Republic] a Frenchman must die

    Leave, valiant husbands! Battles are your feasts
    Leave, models for warriors
    We shall pick flowers to crown your heads
    Our hands shall braid laurels
    And if the temple of memory (death)
    Should open for your victorious manes
    Our voices shall sing your glory
    Our wombs shall bear your avengers

    The Republic is calling us
    Let's know how to vanquish or let's know how to perish
    A Frenchman must live for her [the Republic]
    For her [the Republic] a Frenchman must die

    And we, sisters of the heroes, we who of Hymenaios marriage's sweet bonds
    Are still ignorant
    If someday to join his fate to ours
    A citizen should express the wish
    Let them come back within our walls
    Embellished with glory and liberty
    And let their blood, in battle
    Have spilled for equality

    The Republic is calling us
    Let's know how to vanquish or let's know how to perish
    A Frenchman must live for her [the Republic]
    For her [the Republic] a Frenchman must die

    On the iron, before God, we swear to our fathers
    to our wives, to our sisters
    to our representatives, to our sons, to our mothers
    that we shall annihilate oppressors
    Everywhere, into the deep night
    by sinking the infamous royalty
    the French shall give to the world
    peace and liberty.

    The Republic is calling us
    Let's know how to vanquish or let's know how to perish
    A Frenchman must live for her [the Republic]
    For her [the Republic] a Frenchman must die

    from wikipedia : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chant_du_d%C3%A9part

  8. Extraordinary hymn, sublime music, if it were not that is a piece of brain-washing propaganda (a hell of it) to send men and boys to death for the vane "glory" of an egomaniac man. Besides the evil in it , it adds the vile attempt of convincing the mothers and sisters and wives and fiancees and girlfriends to not even weep for their beloved men and boys who are to become cannon fodder.

  9. There's no difference between napoleon s empire and USSR
    Only that we don't have footage of the 1800s and that's why ppl can't know the entire truth

  10. When your playing Kaiserreich as the French Empire and you use the second weltkrieg as way to retake the main land

  11. Je viens de découvrir cet hymne et c'est d'une puissance…incroyable ! C'est en écoutant ceci que je me dis que pour toujours je servirai ma France.

  12. Can we have more modern national anthems be this inspiring? What is it with France and making utterly amazing nationalist music?

  13. At one very short point in history it was possible for a Napoleonic Veteran (the oldest lived to 1902) to have shook hands with Jenna Clement ( Lived 122 Year, died 1997) and in turn she could have had a millennial placed into her arms (one born in 1997). So its possible for a 22 year old to have touched the hands of someone who touched a individual that saw Waterloo and Spoke with Napoleon himself. 🤯

  14. ngl, I hate the midget and frogs in general but God damn they can make good music when they're not busy being arrogant pricks

  15. Hate him or love him, Napoleon I Bonaparte was probably one of the few people in modern history that could fit the description of an adventurer becoming more and more powerful by learning and outsmarting his more powerful opponents. He rose through the ranks, step by step, learning from ground up, until he became Emperor. His policies around Europe influenced and contributed to Germany's unification, to the rise of nationalism in the Central and Eastern Europe and also the rise of liberalism and the western society, as we know today. He went too far in some places, but he was still human and humans aren't flawless.
    Many tried to imitate him (Napoleon III is prolly the worst example), few achieved some progress here and there, but none actually was better than Napoleon after his death.

  16. Imagine Napoleon Bonaparte invading England and controlling the British Empire's colonies The First French Empire will be the largest Empire ever. VIVE L'EMPEREUR!!!🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷🇫🇷

  17. This comment section is precious. Filled to the brim with angry basement dwelling frenchmen cuckolds, bragging about a victory they had 2 centuries ago. Talking about national pride and activism; hey boys taking a stand involves actually going out and taking a stand; siting around arguing with pseudo Intellectuals and armchair historians on the internet. Taking out your frustrations on foreigners when it's the reggresive leftists who are responsible for the migrant crisis in the first place This is why everyone views us as nazi, basement dwelling, virgin mega cucks… grow the fuck up and stand like a man.

  18. When the German kid says Alsace Lorraine is German so you attack them and lose continuously and then call the entire world to defeat them in the second world war.
    STONKS

  19. Я тут глянул на просмотры 3000 под этим видео а под видео с режимом Виши 6000, что с вами не так!?

  20. If only Napoleon and Hitler were leaders at the same time a conservative revolutionary alliance could of been made and France and Germany would of ran the entire world!!!
