27 nails is about nine-tenths as tall as Napoleon.
In other words, it's 0.910 times the height of Napoleon, and the height of Napoleon is 1.10 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Napoleon Bonaparte; a.k.a. Napoleon I, a.k.a. Napoleone di Buonaparte) (1759-1821) (French leader)
Despite his frequent characterizations as much shorter than average, Napoleon was a period-average height of approximately 30 nails. The mis-characterizations have been attributed to British propaganda and to the confusion between French and British units of measurements used at the time.
