Fragment of cloak worn by Napolon at the Battle of Marengo

- c. 1800

On his death, the cloak worn by Napolon during one of his greatest victories was placed over his corpse. Captain J. W. Crossley later cut a piece as a souvenir. The remainder of the cloak was burnt in a fire in London in 1825, and this is believed to be the only surviving fragment.
