How did the people of France go from executing a king in 1793 to near-unanimously endorsing an emperor in 1804? How was Napoleon able to convince people that his absolute rule was different to the kings'?
Inspired by looking at David's 1804 painting The Coronation of Napoleon, which looks to my non-specialist eye about as 'absolute monarch' and 'Sun King' as it's possible to get.
It seems difficult to reconcile the spirit of the French Revolution - more specifically, the anti-monarchical anger of 1792-3 - with Napoleon's openly and (apparently) hugely popular autocracy. What changed in little more than a decade to swing popular opinion round? Did he somehow convince people that 'liberty, equality, fraternity' could sit alongside one-man rule, or does his success show that the earlier opposition to the king was more about Louis XVI than the idea of monarchy?
Napoleon was a great general because he was very small and thus was really good at wasting his enemies artillery ammunition at the start of every battle.
EDIT: Everyone knows Napoleon wasn't actually short. You're not smart for pointing it out.

Napoleon was Albanian and the Serbs are lying to you
Hello everyone! This is my first post on this sub.
So recently I happened to watch this obscure yet peculiar youtube video in which the author- the staunch Albanian nationalist decided to show us the "truth" about Napoleon's supposed real origin all in a one-minute youtube video. Here's the link. However, in this post, I shall indeed protect the Emperor's good name and go through this video text by text debunking the claims presented by this notorious nationalist. Here we go...
>Napolean was born inCorsica, Italy
>.He knew a lot about the Albanians. He wanted to be like Alexander another great Albanian. He went to Egypt where Alexander the great was buried and he told his soildiers to be alone in the room.
Though I clearly can't answer to the first claim due to the lack of any sources mentioning Napoleon's knowledge about the Albanian nation I can say that Bonaparte, indeed

How did surnames work pre-Napoleon?
So, as I understand it, in 1811, Napoleon decreed that the Dutch people had to choose a surname for the purpose of records. Did Dutch people only have first names before then? Was there a system of keeping records prior to Napoleon? Was it similar to Scandinavian countries in that you were just named after your father?

I don't know if this will really be useful, but... PSA: About summoning Valkyrie, Brynhild, Sigurd, Napoleon and Skadi.
I don't want to put pressure on anybody, but if you want to summon any LB2 servant and Skadi:
- The announcement of the stream date to be July 6th implies that the banners will not overlap, so, nothing of using Skadi's leftovers to try and get any Valkyrie, Nap, or Sigurd.
- Valkyrie supposedly are in the SR ticket on the 12M downloads, and they're also permanent, but I don't really think any non-whale takes the spooks as a way of obtaining them. Their next banner, although it's shared with Napoleon and Edison, theoretically would be around December 21, 2020, but since NA doesn't seem to have WinFest, the next banner we can be mildly sure of will be Lancer Class pickup banner on May 2021.
- About Bryn, the next banner that's not GSSR for her it's the 17M campaign, which should be in April 2022.
- And about the star of the party, Skadi, the next banner that's not GSSR is in the 15M campaign, in November 2021.
- The next banner that's not GSSR for Sigurd will be this year's New Year c

There have been more books written about Napoleon Bonaparte than days have passed since he died.
“The last estimate for the number of books written on Napoleon was over 300,000”
Not only has there been more books than days, but it’s not even particularly close. Even almost 200 years later, ABBA releases a hit called Waterloo. The lasting impact that Napoleon had on history and even eventual popular culture is amazing.

Having Napoleon and a certain character appear in the same LostBelt is especially fun when you know they had a sort of connection in real life
So, >!Edmond Dantes!< makes a brief appearance. While he and Napoleon don't interact, it was still fun to me given that >!Alexander Dumas (creator of Dantes) was the son of a man that served Napoleon in real life. He was in his Italy campaign and then his Egypt one before having a falling out with Napoleon himself, at which point he left, was locked up in italy then freed. Supposedly, Dumas based his stories on his father's life.!<
So I felt it very appropriate to have both in the same LostBelt, even if minimally.
I was seeing some pictures of "How would important historical looks nowadays", and I'm 97% sure they used Quentin as the model for Napoleon. Now we need a kung fu classic set in the post-French Revolution.
Servants like Napoleon, Babbage and Edison...in an actual Grail war
So going through LB 2, Napoleon current form is due to THRONE SHENANGIANS and how servants like Babbage and Edison got like that due to similar circumstances. Does this mean in a legit Grail war, other "modern" servants can get powered up and/or changed due to sheer belief, combined with ideals? Would this mean people like Amelia Earhart would look less like a normal pilot and more like say...an autobot?

In the final engagement (the Battle of Vauchamps) Napoleons 10,000 man army engaged 21,500 Prussians and Russians inflicting nearly 50% casualty rate (9,000) while only losing 600 men.
