Napoleon was a Corsican born of Tuscan decent. Even France's greatest Frenchmen weren't French.

Just like Charlemagne is actually Dutch.

The countries we know them today weren't really existing at this point in history, so why not. He kinda ruined it by upholding the splitting between the sons tradition though, coulda been an even greater empire.

Corsicans are mainly Genoan/Tuscan colonists, they're Italians.

Why? Because France happened to acquire the island of Corsica within a year of his birth?

He told everyone he was french and fought for France

Who cares, Corsica belongs to the French, therefore they are French. It's just like saying current Alsacians aren't.

>Who cares, Corsica belongs to the French, therefore they are French. It's just like saying current Alsacians aren't
So when africa was owned by europeans, they were europeans, too, or when south americans were under spain they were spanish, too.
You're a retard.

>>6117
Of course he had, or he''d have not been in the position he was at that time, do you think they'd let a guy whose land was sold one year before his birth?

It's a good thing that there's actually a good /his/, because this board is terrible.
>>
>>6117
So? Doesn't make it true. Hitler told everyone he was German and fought for Germany. He was Austrian.

He wasn't born french, didn't speak french for the first 15 years of his life and hated France until he got the opportunity to get power in it.

He's also very far from being a great man, much less the greatest French.
>>
>>6295
Colonies aren't the same thing as regions. And if you're talking about French Algeria, well they were considered french.
>>
>>6295
>>6337
All borders and all people are made from previous conquests you retards.
As long as they're not claiming for independance, they're clearly integrated, so it's retarded to say Alsacians and Corsicans aren't French.
>>
>>6407
>He's also very far from being a great man

I'd say he's at least earned that title.

Why?He did almost everything right.
He fixed France and nearly killed England.

So by that logic, all of the people in Syria under ISIS control are no longer Syrian. they are members of the Caliphate. Right?
>>
>>6700
Corsicans were fighting for independence before being conquered by France, dumb shit.
>>
>>6967
Are they claiming not to be Syrians ?
>>
>>6700
I don't know if you noticed, but we are talking ethnicity here, not nationality
I mean, sure, nowadays being born in France is considered good enough to be a Frenchmen I suppose, even if you are full blooded Cameroonese, but I don't necessarily agree with that.
>>
>>7005
Just like any people BEFORE being conquered, what's your point ?
>>
>>7091
So what's the French ethnicity ?
>https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Histoire_des_groupes_ethniques_et_culturels_en_France
In French sorry, but look it up anyway.
His genetic heritage was probably close enough from your average Frenchman for people not to be able to tell the difference. I guess that'd be the actual "limit".

You seem mad.
>>
>>7418
Come on dude, ethnicity is of course not an on-off switch, but a Frenchmen is usually understood to be a person which has a significant history of relatives from geographical France, which has surely a various degree of ethnicities, but all clustering pretty close to an average French dude.
Of course n. Italians aren't really that much different from the average Frenchmen, unless you go to Normandy or something, so the difference is almost impossible to really capture without knowing it beforehand, but since we know about his heritage, why not be clear about it?

one more reason to hate the french besides being biggest faggots of history just after the greeks

they will proclaim to have a different culture, and genetics than french people. Which is true. Napoleon himself was Italian, spoke Italian, and cared little for France beyond what it could accomplish for him.

You can't appropriate the accomplishment of an Island you bought 10 years before a war.
