Napoleon abdicating in Fontainebleau. Painted in 1840 by Hippolyte Delaroche.
As the title may give hint to, this portrait shows Napoleon, on 31st March, days before signing the Treaty of Fontainebleau on 11th April, 1814. The terms of the Treaty forced Napoleon to abdicate, stripped him of all his powers, and sent him to exile in Elba. (Although let him keep the title of Emperor.)
…So you can imagine why he isn’t a happy chappy here.
Come on, Boney! Maybe if you cracked your face it won’t seem so bad! Or you could just bitchface at them until they let you back, but the end result might just lead you into a situation that not even bitchfacing can get you out of.
