This small antique engraving, or lithograph, represents the Roi de Rome,Napoleon II,,also called l’Aiglon,the only son of the Emperor Napoleon 1st.
He wears the uniform of the National Guard,and kneeling in the grass,he prays God for the salvation of his father and that of France.
He was born in 1811,and his age on the engraving,about 4 years old, corresponds to the period when Napoleon was exiled to l’Ile d’Elbe,that explains his sadness and the sentence written below :
« Je prie Dieu pour mon Père et pour la France ».
It is a very touching document,from the early 19th century,in its pretty original molded walnut frame .
At the back there is a piece of leather with a small ring allowing to hung the frame.
A charming taffeta ribbon bow has been placed to hide the leather.
The engraving is in good antique condition , just some minor defects and light discoloration on the paper ,normal for age.
There is a little lack of wood on the right side of the frame,an ancient accident which is not very disturbing.

Dimensions : 7,5’’ x 7’’ framed (19cm x 18cm)
4’’ x 3,7’’ sight (10,3cm x 9,3cm)
It is a really pretty little historical engraving,full of charm,which will delight fans of Napoleonic souvenirs.

Please,do not take into account the reflection like a stain on the left side, it is due to the light on the glass !
