A pair of boots worn by Napoleon, one of the world’s greatest military leaders, during his final exile in St.Helena will sell at an auction in Paris on November 29.
The size 40 boots were given to a sculptor, creating a statue of Napoleon on horseback by General Henri Gatien Bertrand. Bertrand was a close companion of the French leader and had followed him into exile on the South Atlantic island after his defeat at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815.
The boots represent an important part of history and are expected to fetch between 50,000 and 80,000 euros (13,836,882 Pakistani Rupees).
