The OP didn't specify that all three usages of 129 were in the same base...

One could argue that Napoleon really came to power in May 1802 with the constitutional referendum making him first consul for life - 129 years and 8 months before Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany. The birthdays one I'm afraid not much to be done...

What the coincidence is really pointing out is that Hitler and Napoleon both invaded a lot of countries within 10 years or so of taking power. When you consider how many frontiers the two were fighting on in that short space of time it's pretty likely they'd end up invading one country at the same juncture after their seizure of power.

... and Hitler and Napoleon both had a moustache except for Napoleon.

And Napoleon doesn't feature in children's colouring books.
