Pascal from Berlin asked:

"Maybe I missed this aspect of Napoleon already mentioned in One of your episode, but if you did not, could talk a little bit about that distinct hat Napoleon is often shown with on pictures of him. Perhaps it is a modern invention and has nothing to do with the historical figure. "

Actually, Pascal, the kind of hat Napoleon was fairly common with European and American military and naval officers in the 18th and 19th Century and it's called bicorne or bicorn. It was actually based on the tricorne which was popular in the 17th century. Much like the famous "hand inside jacket" pose, Napoleon was not unique, it's just that his celebrity status, then and now, makes most of us associate him with such images.

Here's a photo of one of Napoleon's current hats that he wore in 1799, the year he became a Consul. Thanks for the question Pascal!
