Napoleon Bonaparte

Napoleon was very superstitious. He disliked people who regarded superstition as a weakness. A Corsican through and through, Napoleon believed in omens, demons and the concept of luck. He also disliked Fridays and the number 13. He considered Dec 2, the day of his coronation in 1804 and of his victory at Austerlitz 1805, as his lucky day.
