"Let the muse of History be silent, and make way for Genetics" Jean Tulard
"Fascinating". Prof. Jean-Noël Fabiani, Professor Emeritus at the Chair of the History of Medicine. Until recent years, many mysteries and rumors have surrounded Napoleon: Was Napoleon's body taken by the British and placed in Westminster Abbey? Was he murdered and poisoned with arsenic? Did he die of hereditary stomach cancer, as the English claimed, or of the hepatitis and dysentery rampant on this insalubrious island? Was Napoleon III a descendant of the Emperor? And even, did the Emperor's physician remove Napoleon's penis after his death on St. Helena in 1821?
To answer these and many other questions, Professor Gérard Lucotte has spent twelve years working on this subject. He was commissioned by Prince Charles Napoleon (descendant of the emperor through the branch of Jérôme  Bonaparte, the emperor's younger brother) and Count Walewski (descendant of Napoleon I's natural son) to work on  Napoleon's DNA. Thanks to his electron microscope, he has achieved a gigantic feat that will astound all Napoleon enthusiasts.
 
Gérard Lucotte is Professor at the Paris School of Anthropology and Director of the Institute of Anthropology and Molecular Genetics. He is a specialist in ancient DNA and internationally renowned for the sequencing of the Y  chromosome. He is the author of hundreds of scientific articles.
Philippe Bornet, former lecturer at the Chair of History of Medicine. Diploma in Internal Medicine and Ophthalmology.
