In fact, none of those people except Napolean ever successfully invaded another country.
hmm, and silly me thought that Hitler successfully invaded Poland as soon as 1939, with other countries following soon (Belgium, Holland, France (yes, even if it was split in 2, it was still invaded), most macedonian countries, greece, as well as large chunks of Northern Africa. If you mean "establish a non-military government", then OK, but they sure as heck were invaded!
