Re: Louis Antoine Fauvelet de Bourrienne.

It appears that your assumption is that Napoleon and his government was corrupt and that Napoleon was interested in getting a 'cut' and that assumption has not been proven. For example, there is interesting information contained in Baron Fain's memoirs how Napoleon handled accounts and funding and not only was he meticulous in his records, he also employed people in finance who were also not corrupt.

As for your reference to the domain extraodinaire, how would you expect a sovereign of that period to treat defeated enemies who had begun wars against him, such as the Prussians? War indemnities were the 'norm' in European warfare, as was the taking of territory as spoils. That had been done for centuries and to complain about it because Napoleon did it, accusing him of wrongdoing, is just a little ludicrous as well as disingenuous. It's also a double-standard in judgments.

What is your opinion of the territorial divisions done by the Congress of Vienna?
