Josephine's more distant ancestor, Pierre de Tascher, was in France by 1550 or so, and his son Vincent, went by the name de Tascher de la Pagerie. The family had relatives or friends near Dunkirk, so I suspect the name was of Teutonic origin. But the future Empress's line bore mostly French names (Racine, Loges, Buisson, Pheline, Chaudrier, Ronsard de Glatigny with a trace of Italo-Spanish too - the rather famous Taillevis family, which was almost certainly originally French, but had branches in Italy and Spain).

One of Josephine's great grandmothers was also a du Plessis...

Her mother's mother was an interesting mix of British/Bordeaux (her name was Catherine Brown). Her mother's father came from an established French family.

I would love to know what role they had in the history of St. Martinique and why they went there.

Napoleon struggled with English, notebooks show - Telegraph
Rare notebooks belonging to Napoleon show that the French emperor struggled to grasp the English language while he was being held captive by the British.

Napoleon's English notebooks set to go under the hammer | Mail Online
Evidence of Napoleon Bonaparte’s tortuous efforts to learn English are to be auctioned in France.
Extraordinary notebooks containing the ‘Little Emperor’s’ lessons in the language of Shakespeare will come under the hammer in Fontainebleau, south of Paris, on Sunday.

France plans Napoleonland

France plans Napoleonland - Telegraph
A French theme park is being planned in honour of Napoleon Bonaparte, almost 200 years after his death.
“Napoleonland”, the brainchild of former French minister and history buff Yves Jégo, is being touted as a rival to Disneyland – assuming, that is, it can gather the £180 million needed to leave the drawing board.
The plan is to build the unlikely amusement park on the site of the brilliant but doomed French leader’s final victory against the Austrians in the Battle of Montereau in 1814 just south of Paris.
[...]
Mr Jégo hopes that construction work can start in 2014 and the park open its doors in 2017. He is due to provide more details on the attraction won February 18 - the 198th anniversary of the Battle of Montereau.

I hate Napoleon I, he may have been a good family man, but that's where the talent stopped. He didn't help the French Royal Family one bit during the Revolution of 1789, he fueled the flames. I hated the regime of the Bonapartes, they were thieves of there own country. The French Throne rightfully belonged to Bourbons. He provided the people of France with one thing, instability. Now because of him today France is a Republic...

Books about him:

Read the ebook The Duke of Reichstadt (Napoleon the Second). A biography compiled from new sources of information by Eduard von Wertheimer

http://www.ebooksread.com/authors-en...-son-ala.shtml

These have a lot of information and quite objective. There is another book "King of Rome" by Victor von Kubinyi but it was not objective in my opinion.

He was offered the throne of Belgium and Poland but no one wants him on any throne.

I admired him!
He really wasn't in a position during the Revolution where he could have helped the RF, he came to power later.
And the Bourbons were restored after him, so he didn't create the Republic, their own incompetence did that!

Also, he himself considered his greatest achievement to be the Napoleonic Code, not his military victories.
