Poor old Boney’s a bit confused: one night in Jamestown was quite enough for him

It had to happen: Napoleon Bonaparte, the Emperor of Longwood, has got a Facebook account. He calls himself Napoleone Buonaparte, but apart from failing to spell his name correctly in English, it’s the same chap.

His profile says he worked at the French Foreign Legion (what’s the French for “hmmm”?), lives in Jamestown, Saint Helena, and knows French and Italian. And when it comes to love: “It’s complicated.”

Strangely, Betsy Balcombe, the girl he befriended at The Briars, doesn’t appear on his Friends list.
