Demain, 250eme anniversaire de la naissance de Bonaparte. Aucune cérémonie ou commémoration officielle n'est prévue. Un pays qui oublie son histoire a un avenir compromis.

August 1815 and his entourage are sailing to "During the voyage His Majesty became very low-spirited, dejected and even sulky. We tried to keep him entertained by playing vingt-un and chess for an hour or more each evening."

::: 's death 1825: is most remembered for burning & chasing back to France. He very pious & it's rumored that he faked his death, took on a robe of a monk & lived as a nomad for the remainder of his life.

You probably know already, but he spent his last five years at Longwood House on St Helena Island which is now a Napoleonic Museum with over 900 artifacts. Visitors can view an exact replica of the room where Napoleon died on 5th May 1821.

House first occupant, Nicholas Girod, was mayor of New Orleans from 1812 to 1815. According to the legend, he offered his residence to Napoleon in 1821 as a refuge during his exile. Napoleon never made it, but the name stuck.

Les queues plates qui se cherchent des prétextes pour pouvoir célébrer (le code civil, le général républicain, ou pourquoi pas l’architecte ?) me font pitié. Assumez aimer l’empereur pour la grandeur, la domination de votre pays, la volonté de puissance et la gloire.

Il y a 250 ans, naissait un grand Français : Référence mondiale du rayonnement Français, il est totalement ignoré par nos dirigeants, l'éducation nationale et ceux qui peuplent les rédactions médiatiques... Les médiocres n'assument pas et ne célèbrent pas les géants!
