Quote:
Jérôme-Napoléon Bonaparte, French Prince, King of Westphalia, 1st Prince of Montfort (15 November 1784 – 24 June 1860) was the youngest brother of Napoleon, who made him king of Westphalia (1807-1813). After 1848, when his nephew Louis Napoleon became President of the French Republic, he served in several official roles.

Jérôme was born Girolamo Buonaparte in Ajaccio, Corsica as the eighth and last surviving child, fifth surviving son, of Carlo Buonaparte and Letizia Ramolino. He was a younger brother of Joseph Bonaparte, Napoleon Bonaparte, Lucien Bonaparte, Elisa Bonaparte, Louis Bonaparte, Pauline Bonaparte and Caroline Bonaparte.
He studied at the Catholic college of Juilly, and then served with the French navy before going to the United States. On 24 December 1803, Jérôme married Elizabeth Patterson (1785-1879), daughter of Baltimore merchant William Patterson and his wife Dorcas Spear. Napoleon was unable to convince Pope Pius VII to annul their marriage, so he annulled their marriage himself. Elizabeth was pregnant at the time with a son, and on her way to Europe with Jérôme. When they landed in neutral Portugal, Jerome set off overland to Italy to attempt to convince his brother to recognize the marriage. Elizabeth then attempted to land in Amsterdam, but Napoleon had issued orders barring the ship from entering the harbour. Being with child Elizabeth went on to England where Jérôme Napoleon Bonaparte was born in Camberwell Grove, Camberwell, London, England. Jérôme never saw Elizabeth again.

Quote:
Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte (Baltimore, Maryland, 6 February 1785 - Baltimore, Maryland, 4 April 1879), known as "Betsy", was the daughter of a Baltimore, Maryland merchant, and was the first wife of Jérôme Bonaparte, and sister-in-law of Emperor Napoleon I of France. Elizabeth's father, William Patterson, had been born in Ireland and came to North America prior to the American Revolutionary War. He was a Catholic, and the wealthiest man in Maryland after Charles Carroll of Carrollton, a signer of the United States Declaration of Independence.
They were married on December 24, 1803, at a ceremony presided over by John Carroll, the Archbishop of Baltimore. Betsy quickly became known for her risqué taste in fashion, starting with her wedding dress.
Jerome's brother Napoleon ordered his brother back to France. He further demanded that his brother have the marriage annulled. Jerome ignored Napoleon's initial demand that he return to France without his wife.
In the fall of 1804 Jerome and a pregnant Betsy attempted to return to France in time for his brother's coronation, but a number of false starts delayed them. When they finally arrived, Elizabeth was denied landing in continental Europe by order of Napoleon. Jerome traveled to Italy in an attempt to reason with his brother, writing to his wife, "My dearest Elsa, I will do everything that must be done," but she would never see him again. After remaining in limbo, unable to disembark in either France or the Netherlands, she gave birth to a son on July 7, 1805, in London. Jerome gave in to his brother, returned to the French Navy and married the German princess Catharina of Württemberg. (His marriage to "dearest Elsa" had not yet been dissolved.)

At one time it was agreed that Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte (1805-1870), son of Elizabeth Patterson and Jerome Bonaparte (1784-1860), would marry Charlotte, Joseph Bonaparte's daughter.

Napoleon had the marriage dissolved in the French courts.

They were married on Christmas Eve, December 24, 1803 by the Bishop of Baltimore.

Elizabeth was Scotch -Irish and raised Presbyterian but not sure if she converted to Roman Catholicism.

Why did Queen Catherine's father King Frederick I of Wurttemberg try to convince Catherine to leave her husband Jerome and go back home to Wurttemberg?
