It’s been awhile since high school history class, and I realized that I really only have two hazy recollections about Napoleon: he was a french dude who did some stuff, and he was shorty mcshortshort.
So, I thought I should probably fact check this, mostly because all I really remember about this unit was that the teacher played ABBA’s “Waterloo” for us (warning, the first bit of that video will totally give you seizures. And not just because of what Bjorn is wearing.). So I went where we all go when fact checking is needed: the Wikipedia.
So there you go. Mr. Bonaparte wasn’t labouring under a need to prove himself because of a height complex, he was labouring under a need to prove himself so he could take command and rule the world. Just like every other General-type dude in history.
