Napoleon - My Fake Diary
Tuesday, 24 July 2012
I was born at Ajaccio in Corsica to parents of noble Genoese ancestry, on 15 August 1769.
After I died on 5 May 1821, on 15 December, a state funeral was held. The hearse proceeded from the Arc de Triomphe down the Champs-Élysées, across the Place de la Concorde to the Esplanade des Invalides and then to the cupola in St Jérôme's Chapel, where it stayed until the tomb designed by Louis Visconti was completed.
In 1861, my remains were entombed in a porphyry sarcophagus in the crypt under the dome at Les Invalides, and is still on display! Mon dieu!
After my little haunting trip to Britain last, I think perhaps their Campbell will not get the same honours bestowed on him?
