Essentially in good order, but time-stained. Would easily clean if required.
Shows the birthplace of Napoleon Bonaparte in Ajaccio. Napoleon was born here on 15 August 1769. The Bonaparte family home in Ajaccio was a large four-storey building. All, but Joseph, were born on the first floor of the house. In 1793, the family members left Corsica because of their pro-French political leanings and it wasn't until 1797 that his mother Letitzia returned.
