Empress of France Josephine


French royalty with her marriage to Napoleon Bonaparte on 3/08/1796 at the beginning of his fame as a conqueror.

The eldest of three daughters, she married Viscount Alexandre Beauharnais in 1779 and had two children. During the revolution her husband, an ex-noble, was executed. Josephine was left in hardship and needed help from her friends to survive. When she met Napoleon, he was smitten and wrote her long love letters. Involved in an affair with an officer, Hippolyte Charles in 1788, she did not even bother to answer, but in 1789, when he resumed his courtship, they began their relationship. She accepted the seven-year-younger groom as a convenience as she was a well-used lady with sexual experience that belied her unattractive appearance; teeth that were black stumps and heavy makeup, appearing shopworn. Both misfits, they nonetheless were drawn compellingly to each other.

By 1795, Josephine was the queen of Parisian society at the side of Napoleon. They were harmonious up to 1804, when their marriage began to suffer strain. Josephine could not give him the son he wanted, and her extravagances became wearing. Her husband grew callous toward her and found his pleasures with other women. After the campaign of 1809, he divorced her.

Josephine retired to La Malmaison, near Paris, where she had a dignified retirement and maintained a friendly relationship with Napoleon. She died there on 5/29/1814.
