L'Aiglon - Miniature on ivory.  Art Versailles
The miniature on ivory represents the portrait of Aiglon, son of Napoleon 1st.

Napoleon François Joseph Charles Bonaparte, born March 20.1811 at the Tuileries Palace, Paris, and died July 22.1832 at Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna, is the son and heir of Napoleon i, Emperor of the French, and of his second wife, Marie-Louise of Austria.
Imperial Prince, he was titled King of Rome at his birth.
In 1815, at the end of the Hundred Days, he was proclaimed successor by his father, during the latter's second abdication, under the name of Napoleon II. The Assembly, like the commission supposed to reign in his name, refrain, however, from officially proclaiming as emperor the imperial heir who, aged 4, is then in Austria. Napoleon II's “reign” came to an end after two weeks when Louis xviii, supported by the coalition armies, entered Paris.
He then carried the title of Prince of Parma, and finally that of Duke of Reichstadt which was given to him by his grandfather the Emperor of Austria.
The ex-Napoleon II spent the rest of his life in Austria: until his death at the age of 21, he was recognized by the Bonapartists as the heir to the imperial throne.
His nickname of the Aiglon was attributed to him posthumously, and was popularized by the play by Edmond Rostand L'Aiglon, the title role being created on March 15.1900 by the tragic actress Sarah Bernhardt.
