Napoleon's use[edit | edit source]
The hat, though not popularized by Napoleon I, is now widely identified with the famous French emperor. Almost all paintings of Napoleon at battle display him donning the hat; most characterizations of the historical figure today also associate Napoleon with his famous bicorne.
