Welcome. Keep watching
To complete the answers. 1) The official title of the painting is Consecration of the Emperor Napoleon I and Coronation of the Empress Josephine in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de Paris on 2 December 1804. 2) Nelson's Column is a monument in Trafalgar Square in central London built to commemorate Admiral Horatio Nelson, who died at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805.
Good job. Lemme bounce a question off of you, Rony: who crowned the Emperor Napoleon?
You told it during the lesson, he crowned himself... Correct me if I'm wrong :)
