The Tomb of Napoleon

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“In 1840 Napoleon’s body was removed from St. Helena, taken with great pomp to Paris, and deposited in a sarcophagus of red Finland granite under the gilded dome of the Hôtel des Invalides. Twelve colossal statues, representing the chief victories of Napoleon, surround the tomb, and between the figures are battleflags captured at Austerlitz. Two of the emperor’s brothers are buried in adjoining chapels."—Webster, 1920
