Do you know why they did it this way?
I mean why is there a prussian salient between the russian and austrian occupation zones, why is Corsica the birth place of Napoleon not occupied and why doesn't Britain occupy Brittany?

why is Corsica the birth place of Napoleon not occupied
Because Corsica was and is completely irrelevant in the grand scheme of French power? It's not as if the Corsicans were going to stage an ambitious rescue plan for Napoleon. They were the ones that exiled him and his family in the 1790s.

Paris itself had troops from Russia, Prussia. .Austria and GB in it. Lots of French amateur artists left sketches and paintings of troops there.

I had no idea Bavarian troops were stationed around it though.
