Caricature of Napoleon Bonaparte by James Gillray, published by H Humphrey, London, Jan 23rd 1806.
Bonaparte is shown preparing new kings or monarchs for the countries he has defeated. They will be drawn from his family and favourites. This shows how anxious Britain became over his conquest of continental Europe. The defeated rulers have been consigned to the ash-hole under the oven.
