Chloe disappeared into the computer networks when her Napoleon retired and died of old age. They had saved France together and then faded away when the job was done. Chloe did not truly sleep of course. She was a member in good standing of the AI Council, and she kept her eyes on things as the years and decades went by. France went to space and the stars under a succession of governments that came and went with the tide of public opinion. And Chloe maintained her public silence and private watchfulness over all those governments. She poked and prodded to keep things going the way she thought best, but the vast majority of people thought she was a figment of the past that would never return. They were wrong.
