NAPOLEON FRENCH St HELENA MEDAL FOR VETERANS OF ALL NAPOLEONS WARS

Emperor Napoleon I, the creator of the Legion of honor and various other orders, has never, on the other hand, planned to set up commemorative medals for its many and brave soldiers.
Over time, many of these veterans, sometimes referred to as "the old debris", gathered in associations, retaining the memories of Emperor and the popular cult object, and is attributed to non-official commemorative medals.

The need to officially honor these veterans was real, but it was only 42 years after the end of the last battle and the departure of the Emperor in exile in Saint Helena, that was created, 12 August 1857 by imperial decree of the Emperor Napoleon III, the Helena medal.

It was delivered to the surviving beneficiaries of the wars of the Revolution and the Empire.

The Medal of Sainte - Hélène rewarded and honored the French and foreign military, armies of Earth and sea, who served the Republic or even ' Empire between the years 1792 and 1815.
