General Napoleon Bonaparte arrives in Alexandria, Egypt, then still an Ottoman province. He tells to his troops: "I promise to each soldier who returns from this expedition, enough to purchase six arpents of land."

The French proceed to conquer Egypt from the Mamluk military leaders quickly and easily. Even among the Ottoman leaders, however, there is little interest in why the French are there or why the eventually leave.

The coming of the Europeans will be regarded as something like a natural disaster — an event to be endured but not one that needs to be understood.
