The famous bicorne hat once belonging to French
Emperor Napoleon has a new owner… a Korean collector.., who snatched it at the hefty
sum of 1-point-9 million euros . It had been put on sale by the Monaco royal
family… together with hundreds of other items of Napoleon memorabilia… collected
by Prince Louis II. The iconic hat is one of only 19 of Napoleon′s
hats believed to still exist… though the emperor is said to have worn some 120 similar
hats during his career.
