FRENCH IMPERIAL OLD GUARD GRENADIERS
"1804 - 1815".
While a close bond might be expected between a sovereign and their personal guard, the relationship between Napoleon and the Imperial Guard was almost one of father-son. He took great personal interest in all aspects of their lives, but only committed them to battle on quite rare occasions when he felt the situation critical enough to warrant it. This greatly frustrated the 'grumblers', but their pride in their unit and their love for their emperor always remained strong. Their fame is as widespread today as 200 years ago, and several perfectly decent sets of figures have already been produced depicting them.
