Napoleon's bicorne from the Battle of Waterloo

If you visit Berlin, I HIGHLY recommend you visit the German Historical Museum. I could easily spend multiple days in this museum. It held so many interesting artifacts and paintings. I will post more in the upcoming days.

For example, here's Napoleon's hat from the Battle of Waterloo. To escape capture, Napoleon fled the battle field. In his carriage, Prussian soldiers discovered, apart from jewellery, table silver, precious stones and medal Orders as well as his hat and sword.
