The Emperor

from Victor Hugo – "M. Myriel" on Rap Genius

Meaning

Napoleon Buonaparte, a.k.a. Napoleon I, Emperor of the French from 1804 to 1815. Renowned for his small stature (5'7"), he actually wasn’t that short for a man of his era, and should instead be mocked by history for his schlubby haircut.
