*A pretty well known fact about Napoleon is that because of genetic reasons he suffered for some part of his life from severe stomach pain. It may sound weird for those who dont have constant stomach pain, but when I found this out I could relate a lot and developed an admiration for him. Almost all of his medical reports point out pretty much everything that I feel. I look up to him because of his strenght of keeping his head up, till the very end, regardless of his extreme pain. That's what I try to do, and now I have a big picture of him in my bedroom to help me not to give up.*

Something actually funny is that Napoleon wasn’t actually average height for the time, he was *over* average. The average height for a French man during his time was actually just under 5’ 2” and Napoleon was actually 5’ 7”. So Napoleon was actually gigantic for his time.

Really great and accurate series. I’m reading a biography of Napoleon now and this was a good “bird’s eye view” of the story. One funny point you didn’t mention was that whenever he was assigned to a post on the army he didn’t like early in the revolution, he simply went on sick leave for months or even a year at a time. One time, while he was still a lowly artillery officer, he went back to Corsica to try to get his family to take more power there and settle their debts. He was elected to a political/military role there which ended up with him fighting a few battles against his old idol and hero of Corsican independence, Paoli, and even fighting French soldiers. After they failed, the Bonapartes all left for France and Napoleon showed up in Paris asking for another position in the army like nothing happened. They had him marked down as a deserter but since things were so chaotic at the time they ended up taking him back without a sick note. Plus he had friends in the government by this time so he got a position in the strategic planning committee for the government and got educated on grand strategy and how to run an army. This is how he ended up leading the army that defended Paris from the mob and earned him the Army of Italy. It was an incredible mixture of having friends in high places, getting lucky, being stubborn and being skilled enough when opportunities arose to prove himself.

The video is extremely accurate. Notice the troops get an eagle on their helmet only after Napoleon being a senator (he brought the eagles). His story is so facinating and your so talented you could fit more stories in the video. Like a 5 to 10 seconds part to talk about the eagles or a same size part to talk about Beethoven and Napoleon. *Beethoven loved Napoleon and thought of him as a liberator until he turned into an emperor. The composer even wrote a symphony named Eroica for Napoleon. In the beginning of the symphony Beethoven wrote that this piece was dedicated to Napoleon but then ripped of the name making a hole into the paper.

It is more than that (oversimplified of course) : - Napoleon's father was pro French monarchy - Napoleon as a teenager was a Paolist, for independant Corsica, but most importantly, he was part of the enlightened figures. That's also why Napoleon sided as pro France as time passed, because since the revolution occured, his ideals of enlightenment were reprensented in it, and if you read his exchanges with Paoli about it, it's very interesting.

Fun fact, if youre wondering why the island of sicily (the red one in the méditerranien) didnt get conquered by Napoléon despite being really easy to take and an enemy base is because Naples was ruled by one of Napoléons best generals (Murat) and Hé didnt want Murat to expand and strengthen his kingdom and ordered him not to this ended up being a strain between them and probably one of the reasons as to why Murat then desclared war on Napoléon

Napoleon may have seemed or been arrogant, but the fact he was willing to get covered in blood and mud just like his troops, rather than the generals they were used to who sat on horses and delegated orders, was a massive powermove.

@NinjaKED12 nope, he doesn't. He's spending his days in a perfectly safe bunker, and he goes out to film himself only when it's safe. If he wanted, he could very well make his press conferences in impeccable suits. But if Napoleon would be living today, he would have no choice but to do the same : if you are the top commander, you simply can not expose yourself on the frontline today, not when there is snipers and drones. In Napoleon's time, there was no aircraft, no machine guns, rifles and cannons had also a shorter range and were far less accurate than today. It was not completely safe however : at the siege of Ratisbonne in 1809, Napoleon took a bullet in the foot. So it was not safe for him to expose himself like that, but it was not complete suicide (and a gift to the enemy) either like it would be today. Handling and aiming the cannons himself is also something that, at my knowledge, no other sovereign ever did in history. In Napoleon's time, kings and emperors were already no longer frontline military leaders, and Napoleon was the only one to do so.

@elpoiro last samurai was also inaccurate because the leader of the samurai rebellion was not only a famous general who helped win the Boshin war, but his samurai army was fairly modernized as well, it is just that only the men super duper loyal decided not to run away from the fight against the equally modern Imperial Japanese Army.

Yes, the reason why is because in 1797 the music became the anthem of the Holy Roman Empire, and the Holy Roman Emperor was still emperor of the romans as they were since 800 when Charlemagne was coronated emperor of the romans. As of 1804 the music was the anthem of the emperor of the romans currently for 7 years. So when Napoleon was crowned emperor of the french he also claimed emperor of the romans, and because emperor of the romans anthem was that, it was played at the coronation ceremony. 1004 years after Charlemagne was crowned emperor of the romans.
