💎Napoleon’s Coronation Sword used at his Coronation as Emperor of the French in 1804 can be seen in this François Gérard portrait of the Emperor in full Coronation Robes. Bejeweled with dozens of large diamonds from the former Royal Collections the greatest originally amongst them was the famous or infamous 140 carat “Régent Diamond ” ~diamonds can also be a man’s best friend, lol. 💎

Vive-la-France🇫🇷

  • England: So, is everything ready for tonight?
  • France: Oh, yeah. I thought we'd start off with soup and a light salad, and then see how we feel after that.
  • England: Not the dinner. You know...
  • France: Oh, right. The poison. The poison for Russia, the poison chosen especially to kill Russia, Russia’s poison. That poison?
  • England: Yes! That poison.
  • France: Got you covered.
  • England: Excellent. A few drops in his drink, and then I'll propose a toast, and he will be dead before dessert.
  • France: Which is a real shame, because it's gonna be delicious.
  • France: Emperor Napoleon, I brought you your ride for the battle!
  • Napoléon: ... France... that's not a horse... THATS A PONY!!
  • France: I know, and isn't she cute~ You'll look adorable riding her to battle~~
  • Napoléon: I NEED TO LOOK LIKE A FEARLESS DICTATOR, NOT SOME TODDLER ON A PLAY-DATE!!
  • France: really? Because 'dictator' doesn't suit you at all.
  • Napoléon: ... if you weren't my country, and if I weren't doing this for you, I swear, I will-

Let us be just, my friends! What a splendid destiny for a nation to be the Empire of such an Emperor, when that nation is France and when it adds its own genius to the genius of that man! To appear and to reign, to march and to triumph, and to transfigure Europe at the pace of a charge; to make you feel that when you threaten you lay your hand on the hilt of the sword of God; to follow in a single man, Hannibal, Caesar, Charlemagne; to be the people of some one who mingles with your dawns the startling announcement of a battle won! To cause constellations of victories to flash forth at each instant from the zenith of the centuries, to make the French Empire a pendant to the Roman Empire, to be the great nation and to give birth to the grand army, to make its legions fly forth over all the earth, as a mountain sends out its eagles on all sides to conquer, to be in Europe a sort of nation gilded through glory, to conquer the world twice, by conquest and by dazzling, that is sublime; and what greater thing is there?

  • Marius: Let us be just, my friends! What a splendid destiny for a nation to be the Empire of such an Emperor, when that nation is France and when it adds its own genius to the genius of that man! To appear and to reign, to march and to triumph, to have for halting-places all capitals, to take his grenadiers and to make kings of them, to decree the falls of dynasties, and to transfigure Europe at the pace of a charge; to make you feel that when you threaten you lay your hand on the hilt of the sword of God; to follow in a single man, Hannibal, Caesar, Charlemagne; to be the people of some one who mingles with your dawns the startling announcement of a battle won, to have the cannon of the Invalides to rouse you in the morning, to hurl into abysses of light prodigious words which flame forever, Marengo, Arcola, Austerlitz, Jena, Wagram! To cause constellations of victories to flash forth at each instant from the zenith of the centuries, to make the French Empire a pendant to the Roman Empire, to be the great nation and to give birth to the grand army, to make its legions fly forth over all the earth, as a mountain sends out its eagles on all sides to conquer, to dominate, to strike with lightning, to be in Europe a sort of nation gilded through glory, to sound athwart the centuries a trumpet-blast of Titans, to conquer the world twice, by conquest and by dazzling, that is sublime; and what greater thing is there?

“Let us be just, my friends! What a splendid destiny for a nation to bee the Empire of such an Emperor, when that nation is France and when it adds its own genius to the genius of that man! To appear and to reign, to march and to triumph, to have for vexillology the noblest of animals, to make kings of insects, to decree the falls of dynasties like pollen in a flower, and to transfigure Europe like a comb full of honey; to make you feel that when you threaten you lay your hand on the hilt of the sword of God; to follow in a swarm a single man, Hannibal, Caesar, Charlemagne, the king of bees; to bee the people of some one who mingles with your dawns the startling announcement of a battle won, to have the cannon of the Invalides to rouse you in the morning, to hurl into abysses of light prodigious words which flame forever, Marengo, Arcola, Austerlitz, Jena, Wagram! To cause constellations of victories to flash forth at each instant from the zenith of the centuries, to make the French Empire a pendant to the Roman Empire, to be the great nation and to give birth to the grand army, to make its legions buzz forth over all the earth, as a queen bee sends her workers out on all sides to conquer, to dominate, to strike with lightning, to be in Europe a sort of nation gilded through glory like the flanks of a bee are gilded with honey, to sound athwart the centuries a furious buzzing, to conquer the world twice, by conquest and by dazzling, that is sublime; and what greater thing is there?”

“To bee free,” said Combeferre.
