Emperor_norton_grave.jpg Let us all take a moment to remember the life, death, and glorious reign of America's first, last, and only Monarch, His Imperial Majesty Emperor Norton I, Emperor of these United States and Protector of Mexico. A visionary, a gentleman, and a most just and righteous soveriegn, Emperor Norton I lives on in the hearts of all true Americans (and Mexicans).

Noteable achievements:
-September 17, 1859: Summarily proclaimed himself "Emperor of These United States" in a letter to local newspapers:
At the pre-emptory request of a large majority of the citizens of these United States, I Joshua Norton, formerly of Algoa Bay, Cape of Good Hope, and now for the last nine years and ten months past of San Francisco, California, declare and proclaim myself the Emperor of These United States.

-Oct 12, 1859: Ordered the Congress of the United States dissolved.

-Oct 1, 1860: Barred Congress from meeting in Washington DC.

-January 1860: Ordered the US army to disperse Congress.

-January 21, 1867: An overzealous Patrol Special Officer, Armand Barbier, arrested His Majesty Norton I for involuntary treatment of a mental disorder and thereby created a major civic uproar. Police Chief Patrick Crowley apologized to His Majesty and ordered him released. Several scathing newspaper editorials followed the arrest. All police officers began to salute His Majesty when he passed them on the street.

-August 1, 1870 – Norton I was listed by the Census taker with the occupation of “emperor,” living at 624 Commercial St.

-Sept 17, 1872: Issued instructions for a suspension bridge to span San Francisco Bay, completed in 1936. Also ordered the arrest of the Board of Supervisors for ignoring his decrees.

-January 10, 1880: Norton I buried at Masonic Cemetery. The funeral cortege was two miles long. 10,000 people turned out for the funeral.
