Violets or Hidden Profiles?

This picture contains the profiles of Napoleon, his wife Josephine and their son. Can you find all three?

The print is from an engraving by Canu from in 1815. Copies were circulated among the supporters of the exiled Emperor. In secret they would often toast, "Corporal Violet."
