The Post had little love for Napoleon â Ridley’s Scott’s new epic biopic of the one-time Emperor of France.
And it turns out Post publisher Alexander Hamilton and his immediate successors at the paper shared a pretty similar view.
While Napoleon’s armies conquered Europe, The Post denounced him regularly as a tyrant and even as the devil himself.
Though Hamilton didn’t live to see his enemy’s final defeat at Waterloo, The Post cheered his downfall and brought coverage of his humiliation and exile on Saint Helena.
Napoleon’s death in 1821 made the front page.
