Arthur, vous m'aviez promis un trône . . .

Plate 36 from Moeurs conjugales in le Charivari April 11 1841
Arthur, you had promised me a throne and you put me behind a counter. --Heloïse, remember Napoleon's definition of a throne: "four boards covered with a carpet." You are sitting on six boards and a cushion
