Post God-tier leaders of your country that somehow never receive recognition from modern-day masses.

Rebuilt Paris to its current grandeur.

Masterfully engineered European diplomacy to his advantage, which allowed him to best Austria, gain Savoy, expand the french empire peacefully with consent from other nations, and could've englobed southern America under french influence through Maximilian.

Finally gave France a banking system that would rival Great-Britain and paved the way for french industrialization through Saint-Simonien techniques.

Advanced worker's rights to stifle the growth of socialism.

I could go on and on though this thread is perhaps doomed to 404 so I'll only continue if it spurs some real debate.

OP is #REKT

btw OP talking about Napoleon III, called "Napoleon-the-manlet (le petit) by Victor Hugo"

>>53333697
meh, ofc nobody only does bad things.
but the haussman modernization of Paris >>53333741 mostly aimed at preventing future revolutions : they replaced the small streets by big Avenues, to prevent barricades, and allow tanks.
I'm not saying that some haussmanian avenues are not beautiful.
But small streets (there are still a few near st michel metro) have more charm, like in London.

James "Annex Mexico and 54° 40' or Fight" Polk

>>53333806
He's pretty decently known, or at least he is worth mentioning in history textbooks

MASSIVELY underrated. All that economic prosperity during the Blair years is because of this man and his Cabinet, especially based Kenneth Clarke.

a quote from him
"Aз нe cъм oт фapиceйcтвyющитe пoлитикaни, aз нaпpaвo въpвя към цeлтa cи: кoгaтo видя нeщo пo мoeтo вътpeшнo yбeждeниe, чe тo тpябвa дa ce нaпpaви зa cпaceниeтo нa Oтeчecтвoтo, пpaвя гo, мaкap дa e зaпpeтeнo oт зaкoнитe."

One thing I noted from when I was in elementary school.
Never once, did any teachers mention him. Seems like a shit thing to gloss over.

>>53335391
Probably gives Swedes a sense of nationalism and identity.
Your new rulers can't allow that.
>>
>>53335446
He has nothing to do with nationalism, it's just a matter of fact that he was a very important person for this country and he should absolutely be represented as the king he were.
