They did say Napoleon was short....  
I'm sorry, but history class has been invading my brain lately, and during our disscussion section today, someone said "wouldn't it be funny if Napoleon hated being called short?" (we're studying french revolution). So...the idea got stuck in my head.

Coronation

Original image (it's based on the story that when Napoleon was crowned, he took the crown from the Pope and did it himself. Uh..the pope figure is represented by a slightly ticked Roy ^^;;;)

That's not the Pope you have with Roy. That's a Cardinal. The Pope is the man behind Napoleon sitting down with the "beanie-like" head covering. The Pope doesn't wear the mitre head covering except for special Masses.

OMG really?? Ahh, thanks for pointing that out..

(sorry, just that in the original..the cardinal also looked kinda ticked...so I assumed that was the pope O_o;;;)

Yeah Cardinals always wear red to special functions. It's where the color "cardinal red" came from. The Pope is *always* in white and if not in the mitre he's wearing the yamika (sp).
