You just made that up!
I didn't invent that one, though can't vouch for it's accuracy. There are a couple places on the net that list that as a title that was applied to him, and the source (as far as I could find) was a Harper's article that I can't access.

He was emulating Napoleon. So, basically, he's the Black Napoleon. :D
