Why had nobody ever before had the clearness of perception to see just this, and no more, in the "theatrical" Murat?
Murat had obeyed both his verbal and his implied instructions.
He then wrote immediately to Napoleon, urging him to come up without loss of time, if he would not have Murat engage without him.
"Evidently your mother does not think so," Murat replied, with pique.
Murat is suited to my sister, and then no one can say that I am proud, or seek grand alliances.
Bonaparte's adjutant had not yet reached Murat's detachment and the battle had not yet begun.
"Your sister and Murat love each other, general," said Roland.
Around Murat gathered a group of those who had remained in Moscow.
In a short time Murat came to Rome, and by his frank and loyal character, won for himself the esteem of Consalvi.
Murat pressed him to permit his soldiers to occupy the city.
