Napoleon on his Imperial Throne is crammed with traditional symbols of power. The sceptre surmounted by a statuette, the other sceptre (the ‘hand of justice’) and the sword all had associations with Charlemagne. In the run-up to the coronation, the regime had adopted as official propaganda the flattering notion of Napoleon as a modern Charlemagne (which was already current, as we have seen from David's portrait). Much effort was expended on legitimating his imperial authority by li

Pitch and loudness are subjective properties of sound. Pitch is closely correlated with frequency, and loudness is closely correlated with amplitude. However, under certain circumstances, slight changes of pitch can be created by changes of amplitude, and changes of loudness can be created by changes of frequency. The ear's uneven response is part of the explanation for these latter phenomena. In the pitch standard known as concert pitch, the note A4 (the A above middle C) is set t
