We have some stylish, smart and oh so useful handbags in our range, one of which is named after a true legend of a horse, Marengo. Marengo was the horse of Napoleon Bonaparte and was ridden into battles such as Austerlitz, and, more famously, Waterloo. Marengo was reputed to be a real trooper and known for his long-distance gallops, covering as much as 80 miles in just 5 hours. During the battle of Waterloo, Marengo was captured by the English and was brought back here, to the UK, to live out his life. His skeleton can be seen at the National Army Museum in London.
