Napoleon I sitting on a chair

Author: Unknown artist

Porcelain figure of Emperor Napoleon I, sitting on a chair, height 18.5 cm, sculptor-modeller Reinhold Braunschmidt.

The defeat of Napoleon I in the war of 1812 against Russia led to the formation of an anti-French coalition of European powers. After losing the Battle of the Nations under Leipzig, Napoleon could not resist the allied army. After the entry of coalition troops into Paris, he abdicated the throne on April 6, 1814 and went into exile on Elba Island.
