Geography and Borders

Napoleon is bordered by East Belleview Place to the north, North Stowell Avenue to the west, North Downer Avenue to the east and East Webster Place to the south. It is adjacent to Manor to the north, Fulton to the northwest, East Belleview to the west, Broadmoor to the southwest, Downer to the south, Bank to the east and southeast, Churchtown to the east-northeast, and Hollander to the north-northeast. Napoleon is 10,807.27 m² (2.67 acres) in area.



As with the rest of the Greater Talossan Area, the pre-colonization inhabitants of the land now known as Napoleon include the Menomonee, Potawatomi, Sauk, and Ho-Chunk peoples. Following the Treaty of Chicago in 1833, these nations were forcibly removed. The land was annexed by the City of Milwaukee from the Town of Milwaukee in 1855. The surrounding streets were built sometime between 1876 and 1900, and Downer Avenue was regarded as a main thoroughfare by 1936.

Since 1979/I

Napoleon derives its name as the original location of Napoleon’s wargaming store. Founded on 15 September 1979, Napoleon’s was frequented by Robert Ben Madison and many other early Talossans. The owner, Fritz von Buchholtz (for whom the parish is named), became a Talossan citizen himself on 7 December 2004/XXV. Owing to increasing rents, Napoleon’s wargaming store relocated outside Talossa, to nearby Shorewood in 1982/III. It sadly closed shop in April 2005/XXVI.

Considering the frenzied annexations that occurred during the Cheap Glory Era, Napoleon was probably first claimed by Talossa sometime in 1981 or 1982, but it was the Edgewood Proclamation of 26 January 1983/IV that formally consolidated Talossan territory. Napoleon, along with all the Dun Cestour Canton, was part of Maritiimi (a historical province now part of Maritiimi-Maxhestic until being transferred to Vuode on 1 March 1991/XII.
