From 1815 to 1821, Napoleon was exiled to St Helena, an island in the South Atlantic supplied by the British colony of Cape Town. Throughout his stay on the island, Napoleon had a wine delivered to him: known as the “Vin de Constance”, produced in Constantia, Cape Town.
The exhibits, which either belonged to Napoleon or which he used during his stay, have been lent from the collections of Iziko, the Fondation Napoléon, the Government of St Helena, the Groot Constantia wine-growing estate and the French Domains of St Helena.
