Arguably, it was freakishly small...
That WOULD encourage one to act like a total hardass to make up for it.
Yeah, and the poor guy didn't have much going for him to begin with. He was already short and French.

Although, oddly, one of the best writers of my province (arguably one of the best in Brazillian history) had a micro-penis. Yet he was somewhat well-known as a bohemian - the story about his pecker didn't get out until years after his death, when his urologist decided to be an asshole about it.
He wasn't that short. He would have been about 5 feet, 6.5 inches in modern measurements, according to the first source I found, which is below most modern averages, but not by much. Plus, he was largely what made France awesome back then. :p
There's also the fact that his bodyguard were allegedly extra tall, which made him look another notch smaller in comparison.
It's all about vision and making reality conform to your vision. By dropping a fucking house on it.

Or pretty much the only thing that made France awesome back then.

I guess he was shorter than the average Frenchman, then?
I don't know, to be honest. I've heard that the average Frenchman then was 5 feet, 5 inches, which would make him taller than average, but I don't have reliable evidence for that. He's usually pictured near his guards, who were picked partially based on their height, so it's possible he looked short in comparison, word got out to his opponents about that and his nickname, and they started telling people he was short to mock him.

Edit: Dammit, Agita.

I resent that. I want to be a Swordsage, not a stupid Ninja. :pout

The french at that time a foot equal to about... I dunno, 35 cm or so.  So his actual height was lost in translation.
