I am struck by the irony of the King and Queen buried in elegant yet solemn settings; both victims of murder and injustice. Contrast that with the usurper Napoleon; little man wth the big ego buried under the huge dome of Les Invalides. The pretentious surroundings as if he were a god of Olympus; I am always amazed at the twisted view we have of history.
