Napoleon Bonaparte is considered to be one of history's greatest military leaders. He rose to prominence during the French Revolution and served as emperor of France from 1804 to 1814, and again in 1815. Napoleon is remembered today for his role in the Napoleonic Wars and his defeat at the battle of Waterloo on 18 June 1815. Offered here is a 7.25" x 9" letter, written in French in a clerical hand and dated August 14, 1811, containing content related to the wars, signed at the conclusion by Napoleon. Translated letter reads, in full: Monsieur Count Mollien, I would like to have accounts from exercises conducted in 1806, 1807, 1808, 1809 and 1810 from two ministers, the war minister and the minister of the administration of war, by chapter and by article, of those that have taken place. We will see what is left of spending money after reviewing a history of these two ministers’ administrations during the last five years. You must specify if money was spent from funds other than those of the Treasury, like those from Rome, Illyria, Holland, and the Domaine Extraordinaire, all of that equally organized by article. This work is not only interesting, but also important. On this, I pray that God keeps you in his holy care." Signed in steel tip "Napole". In good condition with light toning and scattered spotting and handling wear. Authenticated & encapsulated by Beckett Authentication Services (BAS).
