Napoléon’s lotto game box

Napoléon’s lotto game box

Martin Guillaume Biennais - c. 1810

Napoléon loved to play lotto with Joséphine, and in later years with Marie-Louise. It was one of his favorite games. He wanted so passionately to win that, legend has it, he would sometimes “discover” cards in his sleeve. This game box, from the Palace at Fontainebleau, is the only one to survive.

Historical Provenance - Former Siméon collection
