“I am 14 years old and I am a fan of Napoleon”: at his young age, Théo has a real passion for the emperor

Théo is 14 years old and comes from Braine-l’Alleud, not far from the lion’s mound. He is a big fan of Napoleon, the French emperor who died almost two centuries ago.

At only 14 years old, Théo is a big fan of history and particularly of Napoleon Bonaparte. “I’ve always been one, it came naturally“, confides the teenager. His entire room is decorated in honor of the emperor and the Battle of Waterloo, the commemorations of which begin this weekend.

A family story

If Théo is a fan of this period of history, it doesn’t come out of nowhere. “His grandmother was a historian. Our two sons are history buffs. As we live in Braine-l’Alleud, just 1 km from the Butte du lion, it came about like that“, explains Théo’s father.

I have a head full of memories.

While he was suffering from leukemia, the young boy received a gift from the “Make a Wish” association: a trip to Corsica, Napoleon’s native land. “I was able to tour Ajaccio and I was able to go to the island of Elba. I have a head full of memories“, says Théo. Today, even his games are Napoleonic.”I like watching Napoleon’s military strategies, so we often do Playmobil battles with my brother“.

Obviously, Théo will be present at the commemorations this weekend. “Every year, I go to the reenactments and the Bivouac“, concludes the teenager.
