    this is a bit confusing

    After his death in 1984, Mr. Lapeyre’s collection became the property of the Fondation Napoléon, a nonprofit organization established in 1987 to promote scholarship of French imperial history and to preserve Napoleonic heritage.

    how can it have been
    established 3 years after his death surely it would need to be around so it could be gifted to them on his death ?
