‘Legendary’ Napoleon hat sells for $2.8 million at auction

A “legendary” hat owned by Napoleon Bonaparte sold for a whopping 1.9 million euros, or CAD$2.8 million, at auction on Sunday, far above the expected price.

The bicorne hat is believed to have been worn by Bonaparte around 1810, or as early as 1806, while he was in the midst of conquering much of continental Europe. At this point, Bonaparte had already crowned himself Emperor of France.
