Dubious morality, drawn out timescales, intricate royal politics, worldwide stages — Colonialism be like that sometimes. And by "Like That" I mean impenetrably complicated. I did my best, I'll say that, but oh man is history a mess in the 15-1900s. This stuff is the reason I had so much trouble with history for so long. It's just so DENSE.
ANYWAY, join Blue and Griffin the Armchair Historian for a look into the history of the multiple successive French Empires. Listen carefully as Blue makes imperceptibly subtle commentary about his extremely non-biased opinions on this chapter in history, and laugh together as we analyze the historical significance of Napoleon Bonaparte's anime hair.

NOTE on 6:14 — I say Napoleon became Emperor in 1802. That's a mistake. In 1802, the constitution of France was amended to make the position of Consul permanent, but Napoleon did not become the Emperor until 1804, when he declared the French Empire. That's my bad.
NOTE on 11:25 — French Guiana, on the northeast coast of South America, remained part of France following the decolonization of Africa. That's a mapping mix-up.
