Product Description

The centerpiece in this “The Eagle” Scarf is a golden eagle, a Roman symbol of power and independence adopted by Napoleon to represent the new French Empire. It is set against a royal blue background dotted with golden bees, chosen by Napoleon as one of the imperial emblems. Golden bees were found in the tomb of King Childeric I, King of the Franks, in the fifth century A.D., so by adopting this emblem Napoleon associated his rule with the earliest French kings. The border is framed by laurel wreaths, a symbol of the god Apollo in Greek mythology, and a Roman symbol of military victory. The sides feature insignias of the Légion d’Honneur, established by Napoleon to reward service to the nation, and the iconic imperial monogram, the upper case “N.” The corners have other major symbols of Napoleonic lore: the mythical hat, a pair of swans, and a coin with the double profile of Napoleon and the empress Josephine. The swan, a favorite emblem of the empress, represents fidelity and grace. The most elegant of creatures, the swan can both fly and swim and mates for life. With its beautiful long neck and regal deportment, the swan is a perfect symbol of feminine seduction, and of the woman who was Napoleon’s only great love.
