People have been fixated on Napoleon’s penis since Napoleon’s doctor allegedly cut it off during his autopsy in 1821 and gave it to a priest in Corsica.
The penis, which was not properly preserved, has been compared over the years to a piece of leather, a shrivelled eel and to beef jerky.
In 1927 when it went on display in Manhattan, Zed Corner weighed in, comparing it to a “maltreated strip of buckskin shoelace.”It’s enough to give anyone a complex!
In 1977, a urologist living in New jersey purchased the modern-day relic for $3,000 and stored it under his bed until he died 30 years later.
His daughter inherited Napoleon’s penis and has fielded at least $100,000 offer.
