Goodbye Napoleon by ForgeInFlames Goodbye Napoleon by ForgeInFlames
Wellington for *camisicado contest <3 Yay wish me luck :3

Pheeew...I really wasn't sure if I make it on time, but I did. I know that there may be many mistakes, and I'm really sorry for background, I know that it doesn't suit too well but please understand me >< My eployers suddenly had something to project I gave them (even before they said that it was great and everything was fine >_>) So I have to sit and work + I have so many tests that I can't count them QQ Maybe one day I'll fix it T^T

Now! Why the hell this crazy girl made him dancing? XD

Well it's a historical truth hahaha XDD

When Wellington heard about Napoleon's abdication he was so happy that he turned on his heel and snapped his fingers in a triumphal pastiche of a flamenco dance XD Gosh how I love this man!! <3

Yay! It may not look so awesome, first time I drew something like that ^^U But anyway I hope that you like it!!

Thanks!!
It was on Wiki and in Wellington's biography by George Bidwell. It was after Napoleon was sent to Elba as I remember :)

I'm sorry, I've always just looked up to Napoleon. Ever since I was 9, 10 years old, I read about him or watched shows about him, and admired him. So I don't like the guy who defeated him at Waterloo, sending him into exile.

Dw I understand your point. Myself I find Wellington as much amazing person, as you Napoleon- who was the great leader indeed, if not the greatest in history. I don't like Napoleon for some reasons, especially because of Polish Legions thing I guess.

I mean the Napoleon's promises and way how the Polish soldiers were involved in his wars (way he treated them too) especially Moscow retreat is one of the happenings I don't really like. No, I'm Polish.

To be honest, I've not studied the Polish Legions too much. I just know a few of them deserted the army when they went to the French Carribian, and they were loyal to the end, in Waterloo, where the Duke of Wellington defeated Napoleon, as you know.

I thought so, this part of Napoleonic period may be not as much interesting as other ones.Polish sappers payed with their life to built the bridges, used by the rest of Napoleon's soldiers to retreat from Moscow as I mentioned before. They also took a part as the only ally under Leipzig and were Napoleon's private guard on Elba after exile. But those are nuances, it depends which happenings are you paying more attention to, isn't it?
