So now you don't agree on Napoleon's height of five feet two inches (French)? I thought that you had. Perhaps you should figure out what you agree or don't agree with.
Baron Fain specifically states that his height was 'five feet two inches.' Meneval states that 'Napoleon was of medium height (5'2"). Both of those measurements were in French feet which equates to about 5'6 1/2" in English measurement.
Medium height would indicate average height I should think. And 'medium height' isn't 'short.' We can get into a discussion of semantics or beat a dead horse over this, but it seems quite pointless to my mind.
