Napoleon (1769-1821) tried to control the Jews and make them assimilate.
However, all his efforts had the opposite effect.
By breaking up the feudal trammels of mid-Europe and introducing equality, he actually set them loose.
Napoleon: “The French government cannot look on with indifference as a vile, degraded nation capable of every iniquity takes exclusive possession of two beautiful departments of Alsace; one must consider the Jews as a nation and not as a sect. It is a nation within a nation.”

If the French revolution gave the Jews their first political victory, Napoleon gave them their second…
Napoleon now learned what many rulers before and after had learned: that kindness towards the Jews does not make them more tractable.
Nechvolodov writes: “Since the first years of the Empire, Napoleon I had become very worried about the Jewish monopoly in France and the isolation in which they lived in the midst of the other citizens, although they had received citizenship. The reports of the departments showed the activity of the Jews in a very bad light:
‘Everywhere there are false declarations to the civil authorities; fathers declare the sons who are born to them to be daughters… Again, there are Jews who have given an example of disobedience to the laws of conscription; out of sixty-nine Jews who, in the course of six years, should have formed part of the Moselle contingent, none has entered the army.’
