During June 1814 celebrations were held throughout Britain following the exile of Napoleon to Elba. Among these was a service held at the Royal Garrison Church in Portsmouth, attended by Marshal Bl├╝cher, commander of the Prussian army, who personally presented the Prince Regent with this sword, which he had worn during his campaigns against the Emperor over the previous two years.
