Waterloo Animals Poster - Napoleonic Impressions

Waterloo Animals Poster

Regular price $25.81

This fun poster features designs of Emperor Penguin Napoleon, the Duck of Wellington, and 'Elefant Vorwärts,' Prince Blücher. The poster features quotes by Napoleon, Wellington, and Blücher about the Battle of Waterloo.

In the morning of the battle, Napoleon dismissed the caution of his generals and said that Wellington is a bad general and the British army was poor. He added, 'The affair is nothing more than eating breakfast.'

In the event, after a fierce battle, it was Wellington and his Prussian ally Blücher who had Napoleon for dinner. At the end of the battle, Blücher warmly embraced Wellington with the words, 'Mein lieber Kamerad! Quelle affaire! (My dear comrade! What a business!)

Following the battle, Wellington said to Thomas Creevy in Brussels, "It has been a damned serious business... Blücher and I have lost 30,000 men. It has been a damned nice thing — the nearest run thing you ever saw in your life. … By God! I don't think it would have been done if I had not been there."

Napoleonic Impressions comes out with the best variety of smart, fun designs backed by solid historical knowledge. I wish all museum/historic site gift shops carried products like theirs!

I was so tickled to find a store that had unique items from Napoleonic history! Prices are reasonable and the shipping was incredibly fast - I ordered a Joachim Murat pendant and a Miguel de Alava mug and they came within a week of ordering. They are both excellent quality and would highly recommend!
