NAPOLEON'S CHILDREN PART II | THE LEGITIMATE - The King of Rome (and Empress Marie-Louise Napoleon's little-known second wife) with Eugene Barilo Von Reisberg

Tuesday 9 May 2017, 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Napoleon’s second marriage in 1810 to the Archduchess Marie Louise, daughter of the Emperor Franz I of Austria, satisfied his ultimate ambition - to ally himself with a reigning European dynasty. His longing to establish his own dynasty was realised when the new Empress was delivered of a son. However, Napoleon’s relentless military ambition soon led to his downfall which turned his trophy wife and the cherished child into fugitives.
