The hat Napoleon wore at the Battle of Waterloo    
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bt5cJZFxZOM

I've seen it in person!  Was very surreal and cool to see and think about "If only that hat could talk..."

Many years ago a comedy was made in the Netherlands, set in the Napoleonic era (with well known Dutch comedian André van Duin). It also contains a hilarious song about "The bicorn of the emperor" (in Dutch: De steek van de keizer". Keep in mind that the word 'steek' has several meanings in Dutch.)

What all does 'steek' mean?  My mind is reeling with the possibilities, especially as relates to Napoleon!   Grin


The Van Dale Groot woordenboek van de Nederlandse taal ( = Van Dale Great dictionary of the Dutch language) distinguishes 22 meanings.


https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steek

object
- (onder)steek, po : bedpan, a po (object) for bedridden patients
- steek : stab (shovel), a kind of spade
- steek: stitch (headgear) certain type of headgear with saved edges
   > two-sided stitch, a pointed hat with two points
   > triangular stitch, a pointed hat with three points

act
- steek (beweging): stab (movement), stabbing with an object
- steek (volleybal): stab (volleyball), a technique in volleyball
- insectensteek: insect sting, for example from a wasp

engineering
- steek (trap): stitch (stairs), straight part of a staircase
- diaclase, a crack in natural stone
- the distance between the highest point of a segmental arc and the line connecting the births of the arc, see arc (engineering)

different
- steek: stitch (craft), a loop made with a thread see also embroidery stitch
- steek: a sharp sudden pain
- steek: a way of knotting, see knot (rope)
- steek: stitch (length measurement), a certain size
      >  the distance from center to center between two mill combs, see comb (mill wheel)
      > a distance measure for chains such as for a bicycle chain, see chain drive


In his song André van Duin also uses the English word 'steak', which can sound like steek in Dutch when pronounced.

The German National Museum (I believe that's the proper name) in Berlin has it, along with one of his formal robes, and even a set of Waterloo teeth!  It has some paintings of Catherine the Great that you'd love!  It's honestly one of the coolest museums I've ever been to; it even has a copy of Martin Luther's 95 Theses!  With your love of history and fascinating facts, I hope you get to go one day...you'd feel like you were in heaven!
