Actually, i think it was French Revolutionary leader Georges Jacques Danton who claimed the quotation "l'audace, l'audace, toujours l'audace," a simplification of his well known "l'audace, encore de l'audace, et toujours l'audace" speech, rather than to Napoleon.

I think it to be "Fredrick the Great" from who the initial expression was molded. However then again, I might be wrong.

In the film "Patton", the protagonist credits Frederick The good for those words, which begs the question: wouldn't Frederick have actually uttered those words in his German rather of in the French (as in the movie)?

Frederick the good prefered to speak French. It was the language the his court and also many of his writings were in French, not in his indigenous German, a language that disliked. Frederick might not have said the phrase: "l'audace, l'audace, toujours l'audace" due to the fact that he died prior to the start of the French revolution in 1789. Georges Jacques Danton, however, to be the writer of this well known quote.
