oooh matron!

Bona of a lonely Parte?

You know how it is: you wait ages for a prurient anecdote about a former Emperor of France and then two come along in one week.

Apparently, after taking a bath, Napoleon liked his valet to brush him down briskly with eau de Cologne, while encouraging him with cries of: "Harder, harder! Pretend I'm a donkey!"

Not a word to the Duke of Wellington, please. We don't want him getting overexcited...
