Boys' Historical Clothing: New 2017 pages

Figure 1.--These boys are three of Marshal Ney's four sons. THe youngest boy wears a skeleton suit. The two older boys seem to be wearing what might be called tunics. Unlike the skeleton suit, these tunic outfits were not juvenile outfits, but rather a fashion statement of their now nobel status. Joachim Murat, another of Napoleon's great marshals made 1st Prince Murat, Grand Duke of Berg wss painted as King of Naples in a similar tunic outfit. The boys of course are preparg to play war. They were painted by woman artist, Marie-Éléonore Godefroid in 1809. The painting was done just after Chrstmas and the boys were presumavly painted with their new toys. Their yonger brother was not born until 1812.

Some HBC readers tell us that they would like to be able to access new pages, but do not want to receive E-mails on every new page added to HBC. We have also for several years now experienced problems dealing with AOL. Thus we have created this page for HBC readers. We will list new pages or existing pages to which we have added additional information. We used to maintain a page like this. We know from this experience that we sometimes forget to add a new page, but we will try to remember to do this as much as possible. There will not be a link on our home page so you will want to add this to your favorites/book marks. We plan to only make this page available to readers who support HBC. There may be occasional changes in the URL. Just let me know if you have any question about this HBC feature.
