According to Wikipedia and some other articles I read, Napoleon was actually of average height (5’7” at the time) and not short like his popular reputation & 1908 psychologist Alfred Adler made him out to be.  He was thought to be short because of differences in the way French pouce and the British inch (French pouce was larger) and disparagements in the British press.
