Set Description:

*Baha'u'llah wrote first of two Tablets to Napoleon III in 1867 -- Napoleon threw it onto the ground and said "If this man is God, then I am two Gods!"

In 1869 Baha'u'llah wrote a second Tablet, warning the emperor to turn towards God before it was too late... the next year, in 1870, Napoleon III was defeated at the Battle of Sedan, imprisoned, and little more than two years later, died in ill health, humiliation and exile.

This first Tablet of 1867 is regarded "as occupying a foremost position among all the writings of the Author of the Baha'i Revelation" (Shoghi Effendi, "God Passes By").
