Is it true that there is a bigger time gap between the Roman Empire and Napoleon than between Napoleon and today?

Yes. Over 1,000 as opposed to a little more than 200.

Oh, no. Not at all. Between the Roman Empire and Napoleon was, what, 120 years? And between Napoleon and today is lie 3, 4 thousand easily. I mean, you'd have to be stupid to ask something like that. Even stupider to answer it, mind. Hope this helped!

Asking questions that you can find the answer to by doing a 2 second Google search.... dude, do your own research first.

Easily! Napoleon was not all that long ago time wise. The Roman Empire ended a long time ago, especially in the West.

If one starts counting from the fall of the Western Roman Empire to Napoleon's rise, that would be 1300 to 1500 years.
From the fall of the Eastern Roman empire at Constantinople: a bit less than 400 years.
Napoleon himself nailed the coffin of the Holy Roman Empire, which was really a sort of confederation of German duchies under an elected prince and later under the oversight of the Habsburg dynasty of Austria. It had taken over the Western Roman Empire when that fell to the Visigoths or spluttered out due to neglect and bad management.

By more than 1,100 years, yes.
