You can just make your own Nappy-style theme by combining Castle with Pirates. Throw in some collectible minifig musketeers here and there and VOILA!
LEGO would never do a theme revolving around a real life war.
Actually, Musketeers were late 1600's, during the reign of Louis the Sun King, fully a hundred years before I, Corsican Ogre, raged and raped Europe.
The CMF Musketeers are more Renaissance-y.

I think that Napoleonic is too hard of a theme for children to understand. They probably couldn't tell Napoleon apart from Wellington.
However, looking at the Europa theme, I think that LEGO could do a theme with soldiers saving civilians from bandits, burglars, and highwaymen. The soldiers could have any color coat, like the new Ninja theme. Such as greencoats in the woods, bluecoats near the sea, redcoats in town, etc.
I totally agree. I didn't know when Napoleon lived till late in elementary school, and my homeschool company went to world history faster (learned about WWI in detail in 2nd Grade) than public school books usually do, so that says something.
This theme idea could work, as long as the soldiers look somewhat accurate, like the old pirates troops. Napoleonic Ninjago? Uh, no thanks, monsieur.
