Cap Haitian's claim to fame include the 1791 Vodou ceremony in which Boukman, a slave leader, called on the vodou spirits and incited a fervor for revolution. It was also in the north where Jean-Jacques Dessalines led the final battle of the revolution. After Dessalines' two year rule as Emperor, he was killed and the country split into two factions with the north being ruled by King Henri Christophe. He would go on to rename the city in its present moniker, build the Citadelle and the Palais Sans Souci.
