Following the military defeats that ended his empire, his only son, Napoleon II, died young and in exile, but the dynasty sprang back to power under his nephew, Louis Napoleon, who became Napoleon III. He also died in exile, after defeat by Germany in 1870, while his only son, the Prince Imperial, was killed tragically in the Zulu War.
