Today’s UDLS set out to look at the lives of some of the most famous conquerors in history. However, somewhere along the line it has devolved into a breadth first exploration of some interesting stuff from the life and times of Napoleon. So, along with talking about some of his greatest victories (and defeats), we’re also going to branch a little bit into some art and architecture of the times as well as a little about a certain famous seer. If none of this sounds interesting, I will also attempt to mangle the pronunciations for every single French name. You’ve been warned! ;)
