The Emperor's New Clothes


This bit of revisionist history picks up with Napolean in prison on Elba. He succeeds in persuading a look-alike to swap places with him, whereupon he finds his way to Paris in an attempt to regain power. However, things take an unexpected turn for him when the look-alike decides he likes his new status as Imprisoned Emperor, and continues the charade, leaving the real Napolean looking like a lunatic in Paris...
