History Tea Time

Napoleon’s Brothers & Sisters 2/2: Baby Bonapartes

Dec. 5, 2023

Napoleon Bonaparte is one of the most famous people in history. But he was not the only Bonaparte making waves in the 19th century. His brother’s prominent positions in the revolutionary government opened the door for him to seize power in the first place. And once he had it he set his 7 surviving siblings up with thrones of their own and political marriages that gave him an advantage. His younger siblings grew up spoiled and dependent on their powerful older brother. They did as he commanded, resulting in a number of miserable marriages and even leading one brother to abandon his pregnant wife. Let’s met the Emperor’s kid siblings...
