Boney the Bogeyman & Bonaparte's Ribs

Postby Shannon Selin » October 10th, 2016, 8:14 pm

A couple of articles that may be of interest:

Boney the Bogeyman: How Napoleon scared children (more precisely, how British adults used Napoleon as a threat to frighten children into good behaviour)

and, arising out of something mentioned in the above,

Sweetbreads, Sweetmeats and Bonaparte's Ribs (and Wellington pillars and Nelson's balls - a look at some 19th century British candy)
