Hannover in napoleonischer Zeit: Drei Medaillen

Translated title of the contribution: Hanover in Napoleonic times: three medals

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingOther contribution


The article examines and reconsiders three medals produced to celebrate the occupation of the Kingdom of Hanover by Napoleonic troops in 1803, the formation of the Kingdom of Westphalia (encompassing Hanover, among others) in 1807, and the eventual recapture of Hanover by British troops in 1814. It places the medals within the context of the medallic political iconographies of France and Hanover and scrutinizes the production and marketing processes, and in particular, why the final celebratory medal was part of a (failed) private enterprise.
