Jean-Christophe “Napoleon Bonaparte” is the great-great-great nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte I , emperor of France, and his wife to be, Countess Olympia von und zu Arco-Zinnerberg, is the great-granddaughter of Karl I. And what this means, is that when Bonaparte's heir, Jean-Christophe, a London-based private equity manager, marries the great-grand-daughter of Austria’s last emperor, they will be reenacting a two centuries-old marriage when in 1810 Napoleon united with the Archduchess of Austria bringing together the former Imperial House of France with the Austrian House of Hapsburg .
