Hortense de Beauharnais by Marie-Hélène Baylac( Book )

5 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hortense de Beauharnais a souvent été réduite au simple rôle de belle-fille de Napoléon. Mariée à un homme qu'elle n'aime pas, assujettie aux obligations de la vie officielle, soumise aux rigueurs de l'exil, frappée par la mort de deux de ses fils et l'éloignement de son amant, la vie de la jeune femme aux yeux bleus semble marquée du sceau du malheur. Elle est pourtant loin de s'en tenir à un second rôle. Tour à tour princesse, reine puis duchesse, endurcie par les épreuves, Hortense exercera son influence jusque dans l'exil où, retirée à Arenenberg, au bord du lac de Constance, elle reçoit les visiteurs qui affluent de toute l'Europe. Intensément mère, elle se bat en 1831, puis en 1836 pour sauver son fils, Louis-Napoléon, auquel elle inculque des valeurs qui contribueront à faire de lui l'empereur Napoléon III. Puisant aux sources les plus larges, y compris les fonds d'archives d'Arenenberg et de Ravenne jusqu'alors inexploités, Marie-Hélène Baylac retrace avec brio la vie à la jonction de deux siècles de cette femme d'esprit au destin d'exception

Les secrets de la Révolution française by Marie-Hélène Baylac( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"True revolutionaries were not necessarily the ones we believe. Who knows today that without the influence of America, 1789 might have been a year like the others? That the role of women was decisive? That the Revolution was not only that of the people but also that of the clergy and the nobility? That the vote of the killing of the king was law of unanimity? Marie-Hélène Baylac makes us discover, through forgotten archives, the daily life of the Temple prison where the royal family is crumbling, the gigantic traffic of the stones of the Bastille, the real reasons for the assassination of Marat, or the incredible beginnings of the guillotine that we initially experiment on ... sheep. Between pressures and political calculations, theft of diamonds and hidden cupboards, against a backdrop of scaffold and famine, is one of the most violent and tormented periods in French history."--Translated from back cover
