About this Artefact by: Waterloo 200 Coordinator

Date added: 13 Mar 2015

This magnificent Egyptian-style cloak was worn by Napoleon the night before the Battle of Waterloo. After the defeat of the French Emperor, this cloak was looted from his carriage by Prussian soldiers and eventually given to the British royal family. Napoleon was fascinated by Middle Eastern style, which he first encountered during his invasion of Egypt in 1798.
