An assignment Napoleon submitted to his English teacher went up for auction recently: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/06/10/napoleon-bonaparte-letter-english-auction_n_1584670.html?ref=canada&ir=Canada
Sounds cute, until you realize if it was written in 1816, then it was from when he was an adult, banished to St. Helena.
Can you imagine being the poor teacher that had to correct Napoleon’s English?!! Something tells me the former Emperor of France didn’t take too kindly to people pointing out his mistakes.
