Elisa Bonaparte was the daughter of Carlo and Letizia (Laetitia) Bonaparte.
She was christened Maria Anna.
In 1797 she married Felice Baciocchi.
Among her titles were Princess of Piombino and Grand Duchess of Tuscany.

As Grand Duchess of Tuscany, Elisa Bonaparte Baciocchi had twelve ladies -in-waiting, nine chamberlains, five equerries, and nineteen pages.
Napoleon I created Elisa Princess of Piombino, a seaport of Tuscany, and later granted her also the former republic of Lucca.
Napoleon declared that he had elevated Elisa in this way "not from fraternal tenderness, but out of political prudence".
Elisa supervised the establishment of all kinds of cultural and educational foundations, libraries, schools, an Academie Napoleon, and an Istituto Elisa.
The Istituto Elisa was not the only place in Lucca to bear her own name.
There was a Via Elisa as well as a Porta Elisa and a Quartiere Elisa.
There was also a Banca Elisa.
Elisa signed documents with an E as her brother, the Emperor Napoleon, did with an N .
Elisa subscribed herself in letters to Napoleon as
"Your most devoted and submissive sister,
Elisa"
Elisa and Felice Bacciochi were crowned at Lucca in July of 1805.
This was the only act of her life as a sovereign in which she recognized Felice as her equal.
