Napoleon IV went to the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich - which is now the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst's predecessor, went to a training when the artillery. But once his British classmates threw him into a pond.

But Napoleon IV In this situation still with beautiful fencing, equestrian and interesting British English is recognized by his classmates. His only drawback is probably the "reactionary view of history", and his professors to Woolwich for Agincourt, Blenheim, or the Battle of Waterloo views very uncomfortable, so will soon become history class and Ukraine ancient Mongolian almost dangerous battlefield.

Nevertheless, he is still very popular in the UK, the British royal family and even going to the little princess Princess Beatrice to marry him.
