"Zopf in his Summary of Universal History, (Precis de l'Histoire Universelle,) 20th edition, says, that a scion of the Comnena family, who had claims to the throne of Constantinople, retired into Corsica in 1462, and that several members of that family bore the name of Calomeros, which is perfectly identical with that of Buonaparte, καλὸν μέρος. It may hence be concluded that this name has been Italianized. We do not believe this circumstance was ever known to Napoleon." Montholon and Gourgand's Memoirs of Napoleon, Vol. III. p. viii. If this be true, Napoleon might be Emperor of the Romans by right of birth, as well as of arms.
