Napoleon Bonaparte Authentic Strand of Hair

NB-H

Napoleon is one of history's most iconic figures. As emperor of France, his actions shaped Europe in the early 19th century.

Napoleon ended lawlessness and disorder in post-Revolutionary France. Following a successful coup d'etat in 1799, Napoleon went on to conquer much of Western and North Eastern Europe.

Defeat in Russia and at the Battle of Waterloo has diminished the stature of his achievements. However, Napoleon was key in establishing a legal framework used across much of Europe, based on Meritocracy, and his military strategy is still widely studied across the world.

When the Duke of Wellington was asked who was the greatest general of the day, he answered: "In this age, in past ages, in any age, Napoleon."

A guaranteed genuine half inch strand of Napoleon Bonaparte's hair, presented on a card backing that's perfect for framing.  

Superb provenance; the hair originates from the famed collection of Margaretta Pierrepont, wife of President Ulysses S Grant’s Attorney General.

Free global shipping. Certificate of Authenticity and our Lifetime Moneyback Guarantee of Authenticity included.
