    Was Napoleon’s marriage with Marie Louise a mistake?

    Napoleon was a very romantic man, if not a little obsessed. He adored Joséphine, forgiving her for her affair with Hippolyte Charles, constantly writing her letters, and treating her children as his own, especially Eugene.

  8. Plausibility check: United Italy in 1815

    So, here's my idea: in 1808 when Joseph Bonaparte is appointed King of Spain the Kingdom of Naples is not given to Murat, but instead merged with the Kingdom of Italy.

    What chances there are for a daughter of Napoleon to become a high ranking officer?

    Let's say that Josephine and Nappy had an only child, that being a daughter who became very obsessed with her father's military exploits to the point where she wanted to walk in his footsteps as a military leader. (Almost impossible for a woman in that period of time to do, there were though the...
