How Tall Was Napoleon?


Napoleon is one of the most famous and widely known French historic figures, a key political activist and military leader, as well as a successful reformer of France.

Napoleon Bonaparte has become a general when he was only 24, and then he was proclaimed the Emperor of France when he was only 35.

Bonaparte is remembered as a very small man, who managed to reach very high heights in his life.

How tall was Napoleon?

As it became apparent after the death of Napoleon, his height was 5,5 feet or 1 meter and 68 centimeters.

For the current standards, Napoleon can be considered a short man.

However, it is interesting that Napoleon's height was actually greater than the height of an average French man of that epoch.
