Napoleon

NPR's Sarah Chayes reports from Corsica that a descendant of the most famous Corsican of all -- Napoleon Bonaparte -- is now running for mayor of the French island's capital, Ajaccio (ah-ZHAHK-see-oh). Ironically, the great-great-great-great-grand nephew of the emperor, Prince Charles Napoleon, is a political unknown.
