Of course, but you are also aware of the sources I'd use and refute them because you personally don't find them credible. Napoleon and his supporters arrested and detained the directory and secured themesleves with military force.That is grossly inaccurate. Can you support that statement with credible source material?
because Charles I wasn't part of the Jacobite wars, and you reached back further in an attempt to undo me.
Why is that 'overstretching'? You went back to the Stuarts and William and Mary. Seems they are all relevant since you brought it up in the first place.
I disagree as too many authors, and that includes people on the various Napoleonic forums, still use the 'Corsican Ogre theory' to denigrate both Napoleon and his achievements.
D'Enghien served and plotted against France; Ney did not. That is a very large difference and equating the two is an insult to every victim of the Bourbon's White Terror after Waterloo. And it contrasts sharply with Napoleon's actions after his return from Elba.
