Imagine This: When Historical Figures Meet Fictional Plots

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Imagine This is a feature hosted by Austin at Imaginary Reads. Every Friday, Austin comes up with a question that asks readers to explore a book and come up with an outcome using the power of imagination.

This Week's Question
You get to introduce a historical figure to a fictional plot. Who would you choose and what will happen?

My Answer:
I would put Napoleon into the plot of the Inheritance series. I admire his rise from the bottom of society to become one of the most famous military leaders in history.

Napoleon would most likely start off in the Empire's army and work his way up to the top before trying to take control, similar to the way he rose through the French army and took over as the Emperor. Napoleon would very likely find a way to discover the secret to Galbatorix's power and overthrow him. Being the intelligent man and strategist that he was, Napoleon would make for a far more formidable foe for Eragon and the Vardin to face, and unlike Galbatorix, Napoleon would be on the front lines leading his army, allowing for swifter and more unpredictable counterattacks.
