Napolean is an interesting topic because he originally hated bankers and refused to take loans from them.
“When a government is dependent upon bankers for money, they and not the leaders of the government control the situation, since the hand that gives is above the hand that takes… Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency; their sole object is gain.”
Napoleon Bonaparte, 1815
The Louisiana Purchase came about because he did not want to take a loan for his army, so sold it for 3 million in gold. He struggled throughout this time as everywhere the Bank of England and Rothschilds influence was found in funding against him, regardless of who he fought in Europe.
Its not until Rothschild gold funding Wellington and his exile that his stance on bankers changed. This is where history goes afoul and Rothschilds make their fortune.
In 1815, Napolean returns from exile in Elba, backed by money from Eubard Banking House of Paris, a dramatic change from his previous stance decade or so earlier. Rothschild makes his historical stock market money convincing people who won and buying back low. A year later they create the 2nd bank of america central bank in America with the funding.
His emancipation of Jews in 1806 is misconstrued as his being in league with them. His public and private statements and present day Jews history of the matter say otherwise.
His letter to Champagny, Minister of the Interior of 29 November 1806, expresses his thoughts:
[It is necessary to] reduce, if not destroy, the tendency of Jewish people to practice a very great number of activities that are harmful to civilisation and to public order in society in all the countries of the world. It is necessary to stop the harm by preventing it; to prevent it, it is necessary to change the Jews. […] Once part of their youth will take its place in our armies, they will cease to have Jewish interests and sentiments; their interests and sentiments will be French.
The Jews on him:
Orthodox Rabbi Berel Wein in Triumph of Survival: The Story of the Jews in the Modern Era 1650-1990 (1990) claims that Napoleon was interested primarily in seeing the Jews assimilate, rather than prosper as a distinct community: "Napoleon's outward tolerance and fairness toward Jews was actually based upon his grand plan to have them disappear entirely by means of total assimilation, intermarriage, and conversion."
His refusal to take banker money to fund the army and his wars and the historical view by Jews suggest he was attempting to remove jewry with "diversity" and "enrichment" from multiculturalism. His actions were overturned and Jewish restrictions were reinstated shortly after, so it was not a lasting emancipation either and not a hard law that was kept in place after him.
But the return from exile might signal a change in his beliefs or a thirst for power or some other reason that alligned him with Jewish interests. He went from not wanting a penny from bankers to quickly taking their money and debt to fund a new army that would be the end of him and the beginning of the Rothschilds fortune. A 'lucky larry' moment. Unknowing pawn? Later conspirator? Just a thirst for power and sold out to grasp for glory again?
I'm not sure and havent read nearly enough about his later days to say one way or another. I'm quite certain, despite the emancipation of Jews in France, that he was not in their pocket or in league with Jews in the beginning. The entire war period had Jews against him and the banks actively funding his enemies at every step. He went out of his way and gave up colonies to fund his army instead of taking usury and enslavement from Jews. His private letters show a desire to assimilate Jews and drive them out of their evil practices - ethnocide for Jews and basically what they are returning to us in kind today.
