A painting of Napoleon, Josephine and Hortense who seem to give an audience to a widow and her child. Maybe others have more information on this the story behind it?

to lucien: I was wondering where the Kings eldest son, the Emperor Napoleon III was burried? In England maybe?

--------

And on another note, according to 'Rites of Piece' of Adam Zamoyski, Queen Hortense had an affair with Fuerst Metternich! Curious that in the Thera Coppens biography this is not mentioned. Note that Metternich certainly got his share as he also was involved with Caroline and Pauline Bonaparte, the Duchess of Sagan and Princess Catherine de Bagration.

Les jeunes rêves d'amour:



M'entends-tu:

Queen Hortense was an artistic woman being she wrote music and drew paintings and she was pretty too.

Question Louis Bonaparte (1778-1846) and Hortense de Beauharnais, King and Queen of Holland

I've not been able to find out in my poking around if the Bonaparte King Louis of Holland remained Catholic as monarch? I assume that if he did he was the only Catholic monarch the Dutch have had (since independence from Spain of course). Also, what exactly are the laws about religion and marriage with the Dutch monarchy? I know the parliament has to approve all marriages but is there a law about the monarch having to be a member of a certain church (Dutch Reformed?) and are there any laws against Orange royals marrying Catholics and keeping their royal rights like in Great Britain? I know some did and it did not make them very popular but I could never find out if this changed anything legally for them.

King Louis also interests me in general. It seems rather out of the ordinary that an imposed foreign monarch would become so popular and so identify with his own people that he would oppose his own family over it.

Cher Louis remained a catholic.There are no laws saying a Monarch has to be this or that denomination,
but tradition has it that the Oranges are protestant.

This is not Britain.The Heir,Alexander is married to a catholic Maxima,
Prince Maurits married a catholic Princess Marilene and they are still in line until Alexander takes over.
