Napoleon Bonaparte became famous for his military exploits and incredible ambitions.
Surely the emperor would be surprised if he found out that today his name is most often heard when mentioning confectionery products and a psychological complex that does not give rest to undersized people.

The fact that he himself could not boast of a large growth (only 1.51 m), so in many pictures he was portrayed on horseback, so that this flaw would not catch sight. Nevertheless, the diminutiveness of the forms did not in any way affect the purposefulness of Bonaparte and did not undermine his faith in himself.
At the present time, modern psychologists view Napoleon's complex as the desire of undersized people to achieve fame, career growth, success, material well-being and so on.
