Relics from Napoleon's final days (a lock of his hair, the shirt he died in, his ivory cane, bandages and handkerchiefs, plus a bottle with dirt from his St. Helena tomb). They have been stored in a small Corsican village and barely touched since Napoleon’s death in 1821. They will go on the auction block March 23, 2014 in Fontainebleau, France.
