    I'd ask him why he continued to let Fouche and Talleyrand into his inner circle for all of those years when he KNEW they couldn't be trusted. What was he thinking?? Okay, getting rid of them would have caused temporary roadbumps, but in the long term, he could have trained up new people he could trust.

    Why didn't you use the Elite Guard at Borodino?

    I think I would ask him why he left a marshal like Davout in France in 1815 instead of taking him with the Grande Armee. It seems that what Napoleon was lacking on that campaign was a marshall that could think for themselves. (Or in the case of Ney at least be able to think at all) Davout certainly displayed his talents for independant command at Aurstadt.

    Why didn't you fight naval battles with the British in Australia during the Napoleonic wars?

    After all, your explorers were quite busy in the South Seas during this time.

    Why didn't you have colonial settlements on the Australian continent in a similar fashion as you had in Canada and various American colonies e.g. Louisiana?
