The story

100 days. 100 days between 1 March 1815 and 18 June 1815. During these 100 days, France saw the return of the eagle, Emperor Napoleon I. From his arrival in the Gulf-Juan, he made a triumphal come back to Paris! The armies refusing to follow the new government rallied their general. The Marshals of the Empire Macdonald, Ney, Grouchy and others found back the emperor to whom they owed so much. The flight of the eagle will however end at Waterloo, nearly 100 days later, where the Duke of Wellington stopped it thanks to his military genius. With the 220 cannons he won from Napoleon, it is said that he decided to make the famous lion of Waterloo, but the legend tells that he kept the most beautiful piece of artillery to make a brass table planter, putting its symbol the lion on each side…How Wonderfull will it be as a center table full of fruits
