The Napoleonic Bee and it's indirect tie to New Orleans: The Emperor Napoleon I used the bee to symbolize his empire. One school of thought says the honey bee is representational of the Merovingian kings, the founders of France, with whom Napoleon sought to align himself. He used the bee in everywhere in his palace, even had the symbol of the bee woven into the drapes. Napoleon was exiled to the island of St. Helena. New Orleanians was full of citizens that long admired Napoleon. Plans were made to rescue Napoleon off of the island and bring him to the French Quarter to live out the duration of his life. The building he was to live in is known as the Napoleon House today. Unfortunately, during May of 1821 Napoleon died on the island of St. Helena before he could brought to New Orleans. Today, New Orleans has a beautiful street named after Napoleon, Napoleon Avenue. And, as mentioned previously, the Napoleon House still stands today and is a wonderful restaurant and bar in the heart of the French Quarter. Bees as a good luck symbol: Bees are considered extremely auspicious throughout the world. They have played an important part in symbolism since Ancient times.
