Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


“Jérôme Bonaparte, King of Westphalia”

“Jérôme Bonaparte, King of Westphalia”

Jean-Baptiste Isabey - 1810

The youngest of the Bonaparte family, Jérôme was often a source of frustration and disappointment to Napoléon. In 1803, he married Elizabeth Patterson of Baltimore, Maryland, without his brother’s consent. Napoléon’s response was to annul the marriage, force him to wed Princess Catherine of Württemberg and make him King of Westphalia.
