Abstract:

"In one of the ironies of history, the French Revolution led to the execution of Louis XVI and the abolition of the monarchy but also to the empire of Napoleon Bonaparte. Born into an impoverished noble family in Ajaccio in Corsica, Napoleon's astonishing military career led to him crowning himself emperor and setting up a dynasty. Three of his brothers, Jerome, Joseph and Louis, became kings of French satellites, and, by divorcing Josephine and contracting a dynastic marriage with Marie-Louise, the daughter of the Austrian emperor, Napoleon himself staked his claim to be accepted by the other European monarchs.

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. The Bonapartes shows the lasting influence exercised by France's Fourth Dynasty."--Jacket.
