The term chauvinist basically means zealous and aggressive patriotism or blind passion for military glory. Chauvinism actually is tremendous unreasoning devotion to a group to which a person belongs. This devotion becomes even more extreme when the partisanship contains spite and detestation towards the challenger group.

The term originated from the undocumented Nicolas Chauvin, whose myth made him out to be a warrior who worked for Napoleon Bonaparte whose revolutionary passion for the Emperor induced him. Even though he was injured seventeen times through the Napoleonic Wars, he continued however to battle for France.

It is believed that in the Battle of Waterloo which the French lost, Nicolas yelled out "The Old Guard dies but does not surrender!" The terms origin and initial usage specify that Chauvinism was penned to portray immense nationalism.
