Paul Delaroche’s 1814 portrait of Napoleon at Fontainebleau. Named "Napoléon abdiquant à Fontainebleau, who represents Napoleon Bonaparte in 1814, in his chair, looking lost, pale, demoralized by the setbacks of the French campaign, about to abdicate and to be exiled to Elba.

This video is by Lindy Beige. I just love his style. He posits a good argument that one Sir Sidney Smith was the single biggest reason for Napoleon's demise. While you may disagree you will end up agreeing that his argument has merit. The video is just a little short of an hour, but I found every minute to be entertaining and informative. I think you will too.

I don't think Lindsey likes Napoleon very much. I don't either.

Ole Lindy is quite entertaining, but his online persona is quite the Brit jingoist -- which can be quite annoying sometimes... :rolleyes:
