Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


Lock of Napoléon’s hair

Lock of Napoléon’s hair

-

During Napoléon’s lifetime, his personal possessions were already becoming regarded as treasured relics of a great man. On St. Helena, while he was having his hair cut one day, the Emperor noticed his friend Count Emmanuel de Las Cases hiding a bit of his hair and asked him what he was doing. When Las Cases denied doing anything, Napoléon simply gave him a wry smile.

Historical Provenance - Las Casas family collection
