Eventually Napoleon was chosen by the people - and in 1815, was, after 20 years of war, still chosen...

Assuming Napoleon conspired/schemed/fought/whatever you want to say to gain power... it was still of greater demonstrable merit than being birthed from the womb of an incestuous whore like most of the monarchs of Europe.

Anthony's point was to cast attention to the role of a ruled people in their government. Compare Napoleon to the Bourbons. Bourbons lost the throne, got it back, lost it in 10 months, got it back in the wake of allied armies, and then held it for an astounding 15 years, lost it forever, and their final monarch is buried in who cares where, they certainly don't.

So by contrast, Napoleon was preferred by the French of that time, whether you like it or not...
