He was nicknamed the Little Corporal but his greatness was not determined by his height but by his military and administrative genius. Napoleon Bonaparte was not really very short as most of us are led to believe. He was average in height for a Frenchman of his time his height measurement was actually 5 feet and six inches (168 cm) in British standard measurement.

The purported 5 feet and 2 inches height of Napoleon was based on French standard of measurement. Napoleon dominated the whole European continent for more than a decade. He was the general who became the ruler of kings. Napoleon spread the ideals of the French Revolution of equality, fraternity and liberty.
