Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


Napoléon dying

Napoléon dying

- c.1825

In his final days, Napoléon grew increasingly ill, suffering severe pains in his side and vomiting attacks. Knowing the end was near he asked his ashes be put “on the banks of the Seine, amongst the French people, whom I love so well.” He also spoke over and over of his son. His last words were said to have been, “France, my son, the Army,” while some also thought they heard him say, “Joséphine.”
