The MP Thomas Creevey was at Brighton Pavilion at the time of the 1805 Battle of Austerlitz, in which Napoleon’s forces fought the combined armies of Russia and the Holy Roman Empire. He recorded that George and his guests studied maps of the area and discussed the possible outcome of the engagement. This French print was acquired a few months later, once it was known that Austerlitz was a French victory that had allowed Napoleon to expand his influence further through Europe.

Purchased in 1806
