Napoleonland? You’re having a laff…
Sorry – this is so good an article I simply had to re-blog it. And it perhaps helps show why there’s always been … let’s just say ‘a history’ between us and our friends over the Channel!
No, I’m not. It is not a joke. And no, I am not making it up.
I don’t have to. A former French minister, one Yves Jego, beat me to it.
(Yes, I am already laughing…)
According to a recent Telegraph article, Monsieur Jego has drawn up plans for an amusement park to rival Disneyland (in whose mind?) to be located at the site of the French Emperor’s (mushroom Corsican upstart) final win against the Austrians in 1814, at Montereau just south of Paris.
I’ll wager the Austrians can’t wait to visit!
The article, by Henry Samuel, reported that “the 1815 Battle of Waterloo, in which the Duke of Wellington ended Napoleon’s rule in France, could be recreated on a daily basis with visitors perhaps even able be able to take part in the reenactments.”
