In the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte by the Pope, who actually placed the crown on Napoleon’s head and why?

Napoleon crowned himself. There are various stories concerning this moment, but it seems clear that he did not "seize" the crown from Pope Pius VII, but had rather determined and planned in advance not to engage in any ceremonies suggesting that he was submitting to Church authority.
