Thread Name: BS: Napoleon was a Scot
Subject: RE: BS: Napoleon was a Scot
There has been understandable scepticism when it was suggested that Napoleon Bonaparte was the grandson of a Scot from Balloch. But I'd like to point out that there is further proof that Napoleon was indeed Scottish. As can be evidenced in various portraits, his hand was always under his lapel (to make sure no-one lifted his wallet).
