Artist's Description

Napoleon cast in a statue as Julius Caesar outside the Arenenberg Chateau in Switzerland.

Bit sad really. But this megalomaniac based himself on Julius. Yes, rather sad really, especially as Julius tried to crush Gaul/France where Napoleon came from.

Interestingly, his nephew, Napoleon the III (who also lived here) erected a statue to Vercingetorix, Julius Caesar’s enemy (hence the pun in the Asterix the Gaul cartoons).

Vercingetorix was imprisoned by Julius for five years and then strangled in front of the crowd when Julius needed a publicity boost.

Roman Civilization??? I think not! Give me Vercingetorix and his Gauls any day!

Napoleon the III
