It must be remembered, however, that Napoleon's foremost ideal was the advancement of his own personal interests.
When Napoleon put his brother Joseph on the Spanish throne, Joseph Bonaparte, a rather idealistic fellow, took his job seriously and considered it his duty to do what was best for his Spanish subjects.
In turn, Napoleon sent Joseph a curt letter reminding him that, although he was indeed the King of Spain, his loyalties were first to Napoleon himself, then to France and then lastly to Spain and the Spanish people.
All I have to say is that Thomas Jefferson was a big admirer of the French Revolution, but Alexander Hamilton saw it for what it was.
My family suffered terribly in the French Revolution, and one of our family members, a noble bishop in Lorraine was guillotined for his faith. My French grandmother's family descends from French nobility dating back to the time of Charlemagne.
I hate the French Republic with all my heart. Vive le Roi!!!
I just wish I could have a nice French royalist demonstration outside the French embassy just to tick off those arrogant French Republicans. How about Bastille Day?

St. Louis IX pray for us. Remember the Martyrs of the Vendee at the hands of the (French) Republican butchers.
