At The Emperor's Bridge Campaign, we always do our research. And our research makes us  99.9% certain that Joshua Abraham Norton — the future Emperor Norton — was born on 4 February 1818.

We've made it our custom to celebrate the Emperor's birthday every year with a party and cake.

This year, Emperor Norton turns 199 — so, with apologies to Prince...
