Westphalian crownorder and medals (1807 - 1813)

Recommended Posts

This looks like an interesting book, Jacques, on a subject I - for one - don't know anything about.  Perhaps one for my Christmas present list :)

I am intrigued by the blingtastic helmet and cuirass as I have never seen one like it before. Can you tell me more about it or, at least, where the image comes from. Thanks in advance.

The helmet and the cuirass belonged to King Jérôme .

They can be seen in the Musée Napoléon I - Château de Fontainebleau.

Thanks for clearing that up, Jacques. So it's unique for the 'Commander-in-chief' rather than being for what would have been - even without the Orders insignia on the cuirass - the best dressed cavalry in Europe!

Does it contain a list of all men who were decorated with the order of the crown?
