Look it up, Napoleon Bonaparte showed MANY signs of aspergers. Napoleon Bonaparte was a war-genius no doubt. Great answer to the first guy. I think I found an answer. Because France was democratic at the time. Unlike the rest of Europe, the French Republic overthrew the monarchy. This meant anybody could rise up through the ranks and become a military or political leader. This system based on merit rather than aristocratic or noble birth meant people like Napoleon Bonaparte had the opportunity to eventually become leader of France At the Siege of Toulon in 1793, Napoleon had just proved himself as an outstanding artillery officer and this was where his rise to power began. In October 1795 in Paris, Napoleon commanded a small contingent of French soldiers which crushed Royalist forces. Napoleon had just proved his loyalty to the French Republic and won the admiration of French politicians. In the Battle of Arcole in 1796, Napoleon led French soldiers in a suicidal frontal assault against the Austrians. He charged from the frontline leading his men, even when Austrian artillery pounded the bridge. Napoleon had just proved his leadership and bravery – winning the admiration of the French Army. Most this led to a mix of Frenchman who either admired or were jealous of Napoleon. The French politicians who were jealous of Napoleon gave him permession for his expedition in Egypt, in the attempt to get rid of Napoelon once and for all. Back in France people thought Napoleon had died in Egypt or deserted, however, when Napoleon returned to France he found that the French government was corrupt and so he took matters into his own hands. At this stage, Napoleon had the backing of many political friends. In addition, Napoleon had the support of many in the French public. Perhaps most importantly was Napoleon also had the support of the army and his generals. Almost all of Napoleon's political enemies had no military experience.
