    In 1804, Napoleon held a referendum as to whether he should assume the title Emperor of the French. In December, he crowned himself and his wife Josephine. On hearing of this, Beethoven said, "So he's only an man after all."

    Ludwig was an activist! When Nappy declared himself dictator, it pissed off Beethoven. He changed the name of his new symphony to the Eroica.
