Julie Clary Bonaparte was the wife of Joseph Bonaparte. After Napoleon was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815, Joseph escaped to the United States. Julie never joined her husband in the United States.

Napoleon V Victor (1879-1926) was appointed head of the house of Bonaparte in the will of Napoleon Eugene, Prince Imperial, who died in 1879. The decision by the Prince Imperial to bypass Prince Victor's father led to a complete breakdown in the relationship between father and son.

Lovely song by the great Freddy Quinn:

https://youtu.be/Sjau_IN09wg

Lyrics:

St. Helena um Mitternacht
Der Kaiser ist vom Traum erwacht.
Er denkt daran,
Wie bald sich alles ändern kann.

St Helena at midnight.
The Emperor has woken up from his dream.
He thinks about
how soon everything can change.


Du bist gefangen und allein
Und wolltest nah den Sternen sein.
Wer denkt daran,
Wie bald sich alles ändern kann?

You are imprisoned and alone
and wanted to be near the stars.
Who thinks about
how soon everything can change?


Die Trommel ruft zum großen Krieg.
Du gehst voran von Sieg zu Sieg.
Wer denkt daran,
Wie bald sich alles ändern kann?

The drummed calls (everyone) to the great battle.
You move on from victory to victory.
Who thinks about
how soon everything can change?


Den gold´nen Kranz nimmst du dafür,
Und Frankreich gibt die Krone dir.
Wer denkt daran,
Wie bald sich alles ändern kann?

The golden wreath you take for it
and France gives you the crown.
Who thinks about
how soon everything can change?


Das Feld vor Moskau kalt und weiß.
Du fragtest nie: "Was ist der Preis?"
Wer denkt daran,
Wie bald sich alles ändern kann?

The field before Moscow - cold and white.
You never asked: What is the price?
Who thinks about
how soon everything can change?


In Waterloo, da blieb dein Heer,
Und Frankreich siehst du nimmermehr.
Oh denk daran,
Wie bald sich alles ändern kann!

In Waterloo your army is staying (lying)
and France you won't see again.
Oh think about
how soon everything can change!

St. Helena, das Spiel ist aus.
Ein Kaiser schaut aufs Meer hinaus
Und denkt daran,
Dass es sich nie mehr ändern kann.
Dass es sich nie mehr ändern kann.

St Helena, the game is over.
An Emperor watches over the sea.
And thinks about
that it can never change again,
that it can never change again.

When he met Tsar Alexander I in 1808, Napoleon I insisted that he must have the largest palace because he had brought the largest suite.

Josephine Bonaparte grew up on a sugar plantation called Les Trois-Ilets. She referred to herself as the bejewelled slave.

If anyone is interested in learning more about Josephine, Ambitions and Desire: The Dangerous Life of Josephine Bonaparte by Kate Williams is a book I really enjoyed.

I've seen it in person!  Was very surreal and cool to see and think about "If only that hat could talk..."

Many years ago a comedy was made in the Netherlands, set in the Napoleonic era (with well known Dutch comedian André van Duin). It also contains a hilarious song about "The bicorn of the emperor" (in Dutch: De steek van de keizer". Keep in mind that the word 'steek' has several meanings in Dutch.)

What all does 'steek' mean?  My mind is reeling with the possibilities, especially as relates to Napoleon!   Grin
