This rifle was made in 1807 for the French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and has the emperor's badge on the handle.
Napoleon Bonaparte (1769–1821), Emperor of France (1804–1815), consolidated France and initiated many of the reforms after the French Revolution. He is considered one of the greatest military geniuses in history and the conqueror of most of Europe.
He carried out very successful campaigns with a brilliant strategy, but was not spared from defeat either. His aggressive wars of conquest became the largest military operations known in Europe up to that point, and encompassed troop strengths that had never existed before.
