The Secret Plan of Napoleon Bonaparte
One of the greatest military leaders and a genius, Napoleon Bonaparte, had an enormous treasure stored away in Paris. His private secretary has documented the total amount of gold and jewels, and Napoleons personal collection of over one hundred gold snuff boxes. As Napoleon returned from Waterloo to Paris, his private treasure was loaded onto horse carriages protected by Napoleons private guard.
A limited group of military friends was in charge to escort the treasure out of France and hid it. At the same time, a small group of family and friends was to accompany Napoleon out of Europe into the United States. The Emperor was unable to flee and gave himself up to the British to allow for his brother and some friends to leave France undetected. His brother and several friends of Napoleon purchased several properties in America, including a house in Cap Vincent, New York, at the foot of the Thousand Islands, where the waters of Lake Ontario become the Saint Lawrence River and a large estate on the banks of the Delaware at Bordentown, New Jersey.
It was there that they hoped Napoleon would stay in a temporary exile once past the British blockade and to eventually return to France to reclaim his throne. The treasure was well hidden, his location known by just a few, waiting for Napoleons return. However, Napoleon never escaped from Saint Helena and died in 1821 as a prisoner of the British.
We know as a fact that the well-documented treasure was never seen after Napoleon left Paris, nor have pieces ever surfaced.
When he returned to Paris after the Russian operation, Napoleon placed a large map of the United States on the table and said to his elder brother, “Joseph, it is very plausible, that in not so distant future, we both will seek an asylum in the United States. Come, let us look at the map for the greatest spot.”
It is very unlikely that Napoleons ever planned to have his treasure brought into the United States. It is clear that the treasure was brought out of France and is still waiting for the day to be discovered.
