The Ogre lands in Elba

It was on this day in 1814 that the self proclaimed Emperor of the French, after losing the Battle of the Nations and surrendering France, landed in Elba, an island in the Mediterranian Sea.

On 20 April 1814 he said a fond farewell to his Guard at Fontainebleau.
...And the Grognards cried...

He would be back for 100 days...

Dieu Sauve le Roy! Vive le Roy!

Jhesu + Marie,
