Two pistols of Napoleon Bonaparte were sold at auction in France for 1.69 million euros. The sum was awarded for the estimates of 1.2-1.5 million euros that experts gave for these historical objects.

After this, Napoleon crashed off the island of Elba on the shores of Italy. Soon after, he made a dramatic turn back to France, but his career ended completely when the British prevailed in the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Bonaparte died in exile on the island of St. Helena six years later.

Previously, France banned the export of pistols across borders, recognizing their national banners. Now the ruler of France can put forward a proposal for the next 30 months about the redemption of an object of mysticism recognized by the national tribunals.

The ruler has the right to vindicate himself. If the country does not purchase the item, the visa fee will be reduced.
