How many Napoleons were there?

I can't seem to find an answer to this on the web, although several people seem to have asked the question.

How many Napoleons were there?

Napoleon II was not murdered. He died of Tuberculosis. His father did abdicate in his favor twice but his claims were not accepted by the allies nor was a regency (he was three years old) formed for him.

Napoleon III was elected President of the French Republic in 1848. In 1851 he initiated a coup and became emperor of the second French Empire in 1852 which lasted until 1870. He has the distinction of being the first president and last monarch of France.

There is some mystery around his death, as his hair showed high Arsenic levels
http://dsc.discovery.com/news/2008/0...-death-02.html


which would have complicated his tuberculosis.

Listed under strange deaths (this one always makes people go "huh?");

An old man died almost unnoticed in New York in 1944. "The last American Napoleon" was walking his dog when he tripped an bit his tongue. One week later, he died of gangrene.

So, you don't have to worry about any more of those people coming from this side of the pond!

There is an excellent account of the action in which the Prince Imperial was killed in Washing of the Spears-an excellent book by the way.

I would! I could concentrate on my historical hero, John Churchill 1st Duke of Marlborough. But yes, I do find Nappy and his pixies great history where Nappy personalities, armies, campaigns and uniforms are concerned.

Tell us how you really feel?

This sugarcoating regarding historic personages has got to stop...
