I have not read of Bonaparte's father being abusive. Note *also* relative to Dzugashvili and Shicklegruber, that Bonaparte put a relatively large amount of energy in implementing policies which created a legacy after his passing. There's an belief in the future beyond himself which seems consistent with being raised absent serious emotional abuse.A comment was made about Hitler, Stalin and Napoleon all coming from the South (which is very subjective). I think the more important aspect is that they all come from the perriphery. The perriphery made Stalin an outlaw, which made him useful for Lenin as he could "find" the money when needed and so came close to the center of power, which he then took for himself. People from the perriphery also often have clearer ideas about what the characteristics of their nation/ethnicity are or ought to be than people in the center, or at least that was true in Hitler's case. Idk what the perriphery did to Napoleon. They all had complexes. Perhaps that's what shaped them more. Was Napoleon's family abusive ad well?
