"In 1824 he played for king Napoleoń, who said he was "deeply impressed" with the talent of the young genius."

Was "king" a title he bore for venedia ?--Marc Pasquin 06:57, 17 Feb 2005 (PST)

Yes. Although it is common to speak about the "King of the RTC", this is strictly speaking not correct. Someone is "King of Veneda" and "Grandduke of Lithuania". I assume this was also the case for Napoleon (I say "assume", because I haven't worked out the RTC's history well enough before GW1). Titles he bore outside the RTC (like "Emperor of France") were considered his own business. IJzeren Jan 07:21, 17 Feb 2005 (PST)
