it shouldn't even be a surprise that the title goes to a Frenchman

"Napoleon's family was of Italian origin. His paternal ancestors, the Buonapartes, descended from a minor Tuscan noble family who emigrated to Corsica in the 16th century and his maternal ancestors, the Ramolinos, descended from a minor Genoese noble family."

Italian origin yes, but assimilated into being French.

There's a chapter in The History of Central Banking about Napoleon. Supposedly he got rid of (((central banking))) and created a stable government managed currency. The French prospered under this.

For all of his great achievements, Napoleon also committed a grave error. He lifted all of the Medieval-era restrictions on the Jews, which enabled them to leave the confinement of their ghettos and conduct business openly. The Jews lost no time in spreading chaos across Europe. Napoleon set into motion the catastrophe that we are dealing with now.

Napoleon had a glorious pan-European vision.

Not just Europe.

He tried to take it to the Arabs too.

Worked out as expected.

Regardless of his achievements, Napoleon should be looked down upon by the people of the White Protestant nations. He was one of the main leaders behind the masonic revolutions in the end, which allowed the Church to subvert the Protestant nations, changing the religious views of the people from the materialist nationalism taught by the Bible to the deranged metaphysics that are popular today.

FBI founder Charles Joseph Bonaparte was given the Laetare Medal in recognition of outstanding service to the Catholic Church.
