 I read a newspaper article today on the top ten bizarre international laws.
 
 Number ten - In France, it is illegal to name a pig Napoleon  ;D

That is really funny, is it also the othe way around that Napoleon is not to be named a pig? ;D ;D

It seems that this man is still somebody like a saint in that country (even when he was no saint in reality.... :D)

But about the name, other animals or pets are allowed to be called Napoléon or not? For example I could imagine that there certainly exist dogs or other pets, which are named Napoléon....so the law is only for pigs??!?

Funny, but shows the general loyalty to the emperor, maybe they see it as destroying to emperor's fame when calling a pig like him....somewhere strange!

Where was his military genius in Russia in 1812?

I've found this funny picture of Napoleon on the Bildarchiv Austria...





I find it very interesting because of the unusual clothes. I never saw him wearing a turban before...anyone else?

Does anyone know, why he was painted like that here? i would have thought there is any connection to his Egypt expedition, but from

Napoleon's appearance this picture must be from a later time, when he was already emperor, because as first consul he was much more slim...

Thanks for looking!

It seems not many members of this forum are interested in Napoleon, but I’m very fond of him Napoleon was a common boy of Corsica who became a French emperor and one of the greatest General of all time imo he comes next to Alexander, Hannibal and Caesar.Napoleon had an incredible charisma on the lower middle class people of whole Europe, including Russia, apparently, in some sort. He was a corsican poor farmers boy until the end. An engineer and a strategic mastermind, and accessorily an emperor. His image was very powerful as a new kind of leader, boosting free market, revolutionising the system in a very organized way.

You’re welcome =).Napoleon loved his son, he was a devoted father to his son, imo he was a better parent for his son than Marie Louise (who was very cold and selfish with her son). In some of Napoleon letter, one can notice that there are reports of his son condition that appear frequently. And at the hundred days, even if Marie Louise wanted to go back to France, I don’t think her father will allow her to go (and not to forget  his plan to introduce his daughter to Neipperg to make her forget about Napoleon). Napoleon II very impressed by his father, and he considered him a role model, he was very proud of his father accomplishment, and he never forgot him (he even cried when he heard about his father death). And due to the fact that he had a terrible relationship with his mother (she didn’t care about him after moving to Vienna) so maybe in his mind he blamed his mother for abandoning his father and it was her fault why he never reunites with his father again, which raised the what if questions about how his life could become if he stayed with his father. I find Napoleon II very fascinating character, he was very handsome, and one can only wonder what he could achieve if he didn’t die so young.

Indeed true (thanks for the correction)!! I can remember that one day I read that the young Napoleon II wondered why his father would marry a woman as cold as his mother!! It's quite noticeable that he wasn't much pleased with her behaviour to him, and who wouldn't at being abandoned by your mother while she is having a new life!! Is a great pity that Napoleon II could never see his beloved father again, and is so sad too to think in his early death.

Napoleon Bonaparte. 

France never had a better military leader, before or since, IMHO.
