1840: Napoleon's Funeral Carriage

Napoleon died (on the island of Saint Helena off the coast of Africa ) in 1821, most likely (lol, sure) of stomach cancer, and in 1840 his body was returned to Paris, where it was interred in the Hotel des Invalides.

With regard to the below article, who, or what do you think was being transported inside the Napoleon's Funeral Carriage in 1840?
