    I know they joke about it a lot so it's clear in the video, but since Napoleon really WAS average or above average height, why still portray him as smaller than everyone else? I love the video so I'm not criticising it too much, but I still think that they could have distanced themselves from popular belief and actually drawn Napoleon as normal height. Here it feels like they joke about it and yet still believe it.

    In an alternate timeline during 1796, Polish and Lithuanian riots in Russia take over half of the country and give Poland-Lithuania their former land and they survive until WW1 and participate in the war and considering their neighbors which side they were on ,you can probably tell which side they were going to be on (The Central Powers) and war stuff happens and no side wins
