Joseph Bonaparte King of Spain 1768-1844


Napoleon's older brother, Joseph was a good politician and skillful diplomat, serving in the Cinq-Cents and as France's ambassador to Rome.


In 1806, he was given a military command and then the crown of Naples. Forced, by Napoleon, to relinquish the throne in favour of Marshal Murat - Caroline Bonaparte's husband - he then became King of Spain.


His enlightened views on governing were shattered by a disastrous series of military campaigns in the Peninsula and, after defeat at Vitoria, he fled for France.


After the 100 Days' Campaign, Joseph spent 17 years in America before returning to Europe. He died in Italy.


Joseph Bonaparte
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


Joseph Bonaparte (January 7, 1768 - July 28, 1844) was the eldest brother of Emperor Napoleon I of France, who made him king of Naples (1806-1808) and Spain (1808-1813).


He was born at Corte, Corsica and married Julie Clary on August 1, 1794 in Cuges-les-Pins, France. She bore two children:
Zénaïde Bonaparte
Charlotte Bonaparte
The Spanish people nicknamed him Pepe Botella ("Joe Bottle") pointing to an alleged tendency to drunkenness. His supporters were called josefinos.


Before becoming king, Joseph was a lawyer, diplomat, and soldier. After the fall of his brother, he resided in Bordentown, New Jersey, USA, for 17 years. He died in Florence, Italy and is buried in Les Invalides, Paris, France.


Point Breeze: Joseph Bonaparte's Home in America
By Tom Holmberg


A French law of 1816 banished the Bonapartes from France and confiscated their property, income and took away their civil rights. Many other countries of Europe also placed restrictions on them, placed them under surveillance and generally harassed them. Joseph Bonaparte sailed incognito aboard the American brig "Commerce" to New York. Captain Misservey, who'd been paid 18,000 francs to carry Joseph's party, thought he was carrying Lazare Carnot. From N.Y. Joseph proceeded to Philadelphia, where Henry Clay offered him his hotel suite.


Joseph Bonaparte finally settled in New Jersey under the name of the Count de Survilliers (Americans tended to call him Mr. Bonaparte)—taken from his Mortefontaine estates—in early 1817. He acquired title to over 1000 acres of land near Bordentown, on the Delaware River. In part the money came from more than 5 millions in jewels Joseph had had the foresight to bury against just such a contingency. The estate was known as "Point Breeze," but it also acquired the name "Bonaparte's Park." Trees were planted and carriage drives laid out. A substantial house of brick and wood was built.


Joseph Bonaparte's House at Point Breeze, New Jersey


This house was partly destroyed by fire in 1820 (local rumor had it that a Russian lady set the fire)and a new house was erected with an art gallery (with paintings by Murillo, Rubens, Canaletto, Velasquez, and Da Vinci, as well as Gerard and Vernet), library, state dining room and grand staircase. A large lake with a causeway and arch was constructed. A building nearby housed Joseph's daughter Zenaide and her husband Charles Lucien (son of Lucien Bonaparte), an amateur ornithologist. Reportedly underground passages linked various parts of the property which raised all sorts of rumors locally.


In 1817, Gen. Mina, the former guerilla leader visited him and reportedly offered Joseph the crown of Mexico. French adventurers also offered to win him the Mexican throne. Joseph refused. Many other famous figures from Napoleonic Europe visited Joseph in America.


Joseph also purchased a large tract of "wilderness" in upstate New York on the Black River. There is still a Lake Bonaparte there. His neighbors for a time included Marshal Grouchy, Comte Pierre-François Real, General Clausel and Lucien Murat. As his wife did not accompany him to America (he did not see her again for 25 years) Joseph took at least one mistress named Annette Savage, who bore him a daughter. In 1832, Joseph, now the Bonapartist pretender, moved to London to be closer to France.


In 1850, Point Breeze was purchased by the British consul at Philadelphia who had the house pulled down and built another to replace it.

Biographies
Joseph Bonaparte's Sojourn in the United States
By Alan Hills


Joseph arrived in New York on the 29 July 1815, or the 27 August 1815 ( some difference in the sources) on the ship Commerce under the pseudonym of the Comte de Survilliers and stayed at the City Hotel. From here he went to Philadelphia where he rented a house in the city centre (260 South Ninth Street). I believe it is still standing. He also rented a house in Fairmount Park called Lansdowne House, built by John Penn.


On 16 June 1816 he found a property at Bordentown, situated between the Delaware River and Crosswick Creek, called Point Breeze. The state of New Jersey passed a special law to enable Joseph to purchase the estate. It consisted of 211 acres with the house and cost $17,500. He enlarged the estate to 1,800 acres. The park was laid out with 12 miles of bridal paths and drives, and a lake a half mile long was made. The main house was in the federal style, and another house was also built for his daughter Zenaide and her husband Prince Charles Lucien Bonaparte. The two houses were connected by a tunnel with a branch which led through the bluff to a landing stage. Both his daughters Charlotte and Zenaide stayed there at sometime during his sojourn in America. All told Joseph spent some $300,000 on the estate. The house burnt down on Sunday 4th January 1820.


Whilst in America he was offered the Mexican throne but turned it down. He also bought some 24,000 acres on the Black River between Lake Ontario and the Adoirondacks. He rebuilt Point Breeze in the colonial style on a site a little lower down than the original house. One of his grandchildren was born there on 13 February 1824 and christened somewhat unoriginally, Lucien Charles Napoleon. He had a mistress called Annette Savage from a Quaker family. She bore him two daughters in 1821 and 1822. One daughter died young, the other married a Colonel Zebulon Howell Benton. Shortly after this, Annette left America with a handsome pay-off from Joseph not to publish her memoirs.


Joseph left America in June 1832. He returned on 23 August 1837 and for two years he fought the railways who wished to run the track through his estate. He won the case. He returned to Europe in 1839 and died on 19 July 1844. In 1847, Joseph's'grandson sold the American property to a Mr Thomas Richards of Philadelphia who in turn sold it to an Englishman Henry Beckett, who razed it to the ground and rebuilt the house in a less grand style. The house changed hands many times over the years finally being bought in 1970 by the Divine World Seminary. Only 242 acres of the estate remain, the only original structure is the gardener's lodge at the entrance to Park Street. Joseph's final resting place is in the Hotel des Invalides in Paris where his body was laid on 14 June 1862 at Napoleon III's request (Joseph's nephew).


Point Breeze: Joseph Bonaparte's American.(estate of former king in New Jersey; art, furniture collections )


....Joseph Bonaparte died in Florence in 1844 with his faithful wife beside him. He bequeathed Point Breeze to his grandson Joseph Lucien Bonaparte (1824-1865), who sold it in 1847 to a Thomas Richards. Several years later, Richards sold it to Henry Beckett, formerly the British consul in Philadelphia. (32) Beckett, a fervent Francophobe, tore down the mansion and built a house that was lost in a fire in 1985. It was then replaced by an institutional structure to house the Divine Word Seminary for the training of Roman Catholic missionary priests......

Notes


Joseph Herndon, (1737-1810). Joseph was a vestryman of St. George Church and a Signer of the Fredericksburg Resolution Apr. 28, 1775


He was a graduate of the Univesity of Edinburgh and a lifelong member of St. George's church and also a vestryman; he was also a vestryman of Barbridge's church and Mattapony chapel.


He attended a meeting on June 1, 1774, in Spotsylvania, to take action in regards the Boston Port Bill. The meeting was adjourned until June 24th, at which time a resolution was adopted declaring that, "the acts of the British Parliament are unconstitutional, arbitrary and unjust," and "calculated for the destruction of the rights of America; that the levies of Parliament are the free gift of the people, granted by their representatives"; that the British Parliament can have no power of making laws for the government of the colonies, as they have one of their own"; their allegiance to the Crown but that they owed no obedience to any act of the British Parliament respecting the internal policies of the colonies; that the acts of the British Parliament in regardto the Province of Massachusetts and the port of Boston are unconstitutional, and that the duty on tea is against the rights and liberties of America and ought to be opposed by the people; and, that the best method of opposing the said acts will be to break off all commercial connection with Great Britian until they are repealed.


This is the first recorded opposition to the Crown by a legal body of the colonies. Less than a year later, on April 28, 1775, the famous Fredericksburg Resolutions were adopted, Joseph Herndon being one of the signers. These resolutions, drafted by Peyton Randolph and Edmund Pendleton, were adopted more than a year before the Declaration of Independence was conceived. The principles of these original resolutions were later incorporated into the Declaration of Independence. Joseph, Edward and John was elected at Spotsylvania, Spotsylvania Co., Virginia, on 17 November 1775. All three brothers were elected to the Committee of Safety for Spotsylvania County, Virginia.2
