Exile on Saint Helena


Napoleon on Saint Helena

Britain kept Napoleon on the island of Saint Helena in the Atlantic Ocean, 1,870 km (1,162 mi) from the west coast of Africa. Napoleon was moved to Longwood House there in December 1815; it had fallen into disrepair, and the location was damp, windswept and unhealthy.[citation neededThe Times published articles insinuating the British government was trying to hasten his death, and he often complained of the living conditions in letters to the governor and his custodian, Hudson Lowe.[180]
With a small cadre of followers, Napoleon dictated his memoirs and grumbled about conditions. Lowe cut Napoleon's expenditure, ruled that no gifts were allowed if they mentioned his imperial status, and made his supporters sign a guarantee they would stay with the prisoner indefinitely.[181]
While in exile, he wrote a book about Julius Caesar, one of his great heroes.[182]



Longwood House, Saint Helena: site of Napoleon's captivity

There were rumors of plots and even of his escape, but in reality no serious attempts were made.[183] For English poet Lord Byron, Napoleon was the epitome of the Romantic hero, the persecuted, lonely, and flawed genius.[184]

Na vlaku sem srečal očanca. Skozi mogočne brke je povedal, da se je rodil leta 1951 in da je bil udeleženec dražgoške ritke:
" Bilo je 150.000 nemcev in komaj 5 nas partizanov. Pa smo jih tako hitro streljali, da smo jih pobili ko vrabce v 10 minutah! "
Neka stara mama s cekerom jajc je nekoliko podvomila v pravilen izračun, pa jo je starec tako usekal s tisto grčavo palico, da je padla čez 3 kolovrate in 2 šporheta, ki jih je imel na drugem delu kupeja zložene nek švercer.
