Robe sword and scabbard


RCIN 61171

In 1799 a new system of government was introduced in France, led by three Consuls, with Napoleon being elected First Consul. A sword of this pattern was provided to each of them, although this one is of a later date and must have been a replacement for the original. It was acquired by George IV with a certificate swearing that it had belonged to Napoleon himself.
