Notes


Charles Louis Napoleon Bonaparte (April 20, 1808 - January 9, 1873) was the son of King Louis Bonaparte and Queen Hortense de Beauharnais; both monarchs of the Kingdom of Holland.


He was elected President (1848-1852) of the Second Republic of France and subsequently Emperor (1852-1870), reigning as Napoleon III (Second French Empire). In a situation that resembles the case of Louis XVIII of France, the numbering of Napoleon's reign assumes the existence of a legitimate Napoleon II of France who never actually ruled.


Imprisoned after the second of two abortive coup attempts (October 1836 and August 1840,he escaped to the United Kingdom returning after the revolution of February 1848 to win the presidential election December 2 that year on a platform of strong government, social consolidation and national greatness. President Bonaparte then on December 2, 1851 overthrew the Second Republic and seized dictatorial powers. He became Emperor exactly one year later and established the Second French Empire


(The Second French Empire or Second Empire was the imperial Bonapartist regime of Napoleon III from 1852 to 1870, between the Second republic and the Third Republic, in France.)



That same year, he began shipping political prisoners and criminals to penal colonies such as Devil's Island Devil's Island (French Île du Diable), is an island located off the coast of French Guiana. It was a notorious French penal colony until 1946.


or (in milder cases) New Caledonia New Caledonia, or Kanaky as it is known by its native inhabitants, is an island in the southwest Pacific. Along with neighbouring French Polynesia, it is ruled by France.


On April, 28th, 1855 he survived an attempted assassination.


Napoleon's challenge to Russia Russian Federation's claims to influence in the Ottoman Empire led to France's successful participation in the Crimean War (March 1854-March 1856). He approved the launching of a naval expedition in 1858 to punish the Vietnamese and force the court to accept a French presence in the country. On January 14, 1858 Napoleon escaped another assassination attempt. In May-July 1859 French intervention secured the defeat of Austria in Italy. But intervention in Mexico (January 1862-March 1867) ended in defeat and the execution of the French-backed Emperor Maximilian, and France saw her influence further eroded by Prussia's crushing victory over Austria in June-August 1866.


An important change during his reign was the rebuilding of Paris. This was done to reduce the ability of future revolutionaries to challenge the government. Large sections of the city were razed and the old convoluted streets were replaced with many broad avenues, with the intent of allowing cannon to be used easily within the city. The rebuilding of Paris was directed by Baron Haussmann (1809-1891; Prefect of the Seine 1853-1870).


He also directed the building of the French railway network. The design was very inefficient, however, as all routes lead to Paris. There were lines between Paris and Lyon, Caen, and Marseilles, but no lines connecting the latter cities to each other. Thus to travel from Marseilles to Bordeaux one needed to go via Paris, a great inefficiency. This was economically inefficient, and also militarily made the French far slower to organize than the more rationally organized Prussians.


Hoping to achieve military glory to match his uncle Louis and forced by the diplomacy of the German chancellor Otto von Bismarck, Napoleon began the Franco-Prussian War in 1870. This war proved disastrous, and was instrumental in giving birth to the German Empire. In battle against Prussia in July 1870 the Emperor was captured at the Battle of Sedan (September 2) and was deposed by the forces of the Third Republic in Paris two days later. He died in exile in England on January 9, 1873.


Married to Empress Eugenie, a Spanish noble of Scottish and Spanish descent, Napoleon III had one son, Eugene Bonaparte.


He is buried in the Imperial Crypt at Saint Michael's Abbey, Farnborough, Hampshire, England.


Pr français (Imperial Highness) and Pr of Holland, President of France 10 Dec 1848, became Napoléon III, Emperor of the French 2 Dec 1852.
Napoleon III was trapped with the bulk of the army in Sedan and had to surrender to Bismarck: 1st september 1870. he is then interned in the castle of Wilhelmshöhe near Cassel. On march 1 1871, the National Assembly in Bordeaux confirmed his destitution and stated that "he was responsible for the defeat, ruin and dismemberment of France". From then on, he was of no interest to the germans (he actually never really had been...). He decided to exile himself in England. The good relations the imperial regime had had with Victorian britain bore its fruits. He was acclaimed as he landed at Dover (he was the first surprised) and settled in Chislehurst (Kent) in a fine country mansion: Camden Place (20 March 1871).


Napoleon had in fact been a very sick man for several years. he had a serious bladder stone condition and this ruled out any hope of him trying to regain power in France. All hopes were left with the Prince Impérial who went on to study at the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich.


On the 9th january 1873, after an attempt at surgery to remove the stone, Napoleon III died. His only son, died in 1879 during the Zulu war a brilliant and brave officer. He was buried in Farnborough in the presence of Queen Victoria and a monument is dedicated to him in Windsor.


Eugenie, the empress was bestowed with an exceptionnally long life, born in 1826, she died in 1920 in her native Spain - happy to see France victorious again.
