Notes[edit]

  1. Napoleon and his staff are retuning from Soissons after the battle of Laon in 1814. The Battle of Laon, on 9–10 March 1814, was the victory of Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher's Prussian army over Napoleon's French army near Laon. The man with the coat around his shoulders is Michel Ney.
