Description


What were Albert Einstein’s last words? What was Hitler’s real name? What famous artist was mistakenly thought to be stillborn? What sport did Fidel Castro almost play professionally in America? These questions and more are answered in Napoleon’s Hemorrhoids, a roller coaster of historical information. Napoleon’s painful hemorrhoids prevented him from mounting his horse to survey the battlefield. Hitler’s father’s name was actually Shicklgruber, but when his mother remarried, he took his stepfather’s name—Hitler. Fidel Castro almost became a baseball player. Picasso was stillborn until his uncle revived him by blowing cigar smoke in his face. And...no one actually knows Einstein’s last words. They were in German, a language his nurse did not speak.
