Sarah Lowery History 102 Batham 17 January 2009 Political Cartoon Analysis: http://www.angelfire.com/nb2/drook/images/hanged.gif In this political cartoon, Napoleon Bonaparte is pictured being hung by the neck. His hat is on the ground in front of him, and his sword is fastened on his belt. There are also six characters in the background celebrating Napoleon’s hanging. Each of the characters represent a country involved in the French Revolution. This cartoon was drawn to show how relieved the rest of the world was after Napoleon’s reign was officially over. The artist used symbols of the countries’ apparel to identify the background characters. For example, the artist drew a bear-fur cap on the Russian and Holland’s character is plump and has a pipe in his hat. The six men feature six different countries and are listed from left to right: Russia, Prussia, England, Germany, Switzerland, and Holland. Each of the men are saying “Good news for Russa, Prussica, England, etc.” according to the man’s country of origin.
