The Giant and the Dwarf, 1859

The Giant and the Dwarf, 1859. Bravo, My little fellow! You shall do all the Fighting, and we'll divide the Glory! Napoleon III, dressed casually in an embroidered gown, looks condescendingly down upon the diminutive Victor Emmanuel of Sardinia. Initially, after Napoleon had gone to Italy's aid, he had won victories at Magenta and Solferino. However, although the Austrians had some 15, 000 men dead and wounded, the cost was high enough to the French, and Napoleon was aware of the risk to his dynasty if he were to die when his only son was still little more than a baby. Mr Punch therefore rather cynically suggests that he should hang up his sword having put Italy well on track towards ridding herself of the Austrian yoke. From Punch, or the London Charivari, June 11, 1859
