Bonaparte assumed the imperial eagle as his avian counterpart and the creature appeared on his coat of arms. His fascination with this bird was most certainly rooted in its association with the powerful Roman Empire. Later, the Nazis also used this bird as a symbol as they plotted their own world domination. Makes me feel rather sorry for the good old imperial eagle, who mostly just likes to be left alone and fed a little hamster snack once in a while.

Painting inspired by: "Napoleon Crossing the Alps" Jacques-Louis David 1801.
