Yesterday marked 211 years since the assasination of Jean-Jacques Dessalines. He was not only one of the greatest leaders of the Haitian Revolution but also the most shrewd and most fierce of generals in the battle. Post independence, he boldly named the first ruler of an independent Haiti under the 1805 constitution. Something that had never been done by a former slave, a strategic and exemplary move the Europeans did not anticipate.
Initially regarded as governor-general, Dessalines was later named EmperorJacques I of Haiti (1804–1806) by the Generals of the Haitian Revolution Army. He is regarded as a founding father of Haiti. #Natural Bliss
