Napoleon's Birth: Myth vs Fact

Postby Shannon Selin » August 15th, 2016, 4:30 pm

For Napoleon's 247th birthday (he was born on August 15, 1769), I decided to look into what is known about his birth. Like most things about Napoleon, I found myth mixed in with fact. However, one thing that sounded like myth turned out to be true. See: http://shannonselin.com/2016/08/birth-napoleon-bonaparte/.

Best regards,
Shannon
