Royalist leader Georges Cadoudal and his fellow conspirators land beneath the cliffs of Biville, Normandy during the night of 21 August 1803 as the first step in their plan to assassinate Napoleon Bonaparte and bring about a Bourbon Restoration. Their conspiracy would ultimately fail, and Cadoudal would be executed.
