Napoleon - An Intimate Portrait


“Duke of Reichstadt”

“Duke of Reichstadt”

Louis Léopold Boilly, after Daffinger - c. 1830

After Napoléon’s downfall, his son was taken back to the court of his grandfather, Francis II, in Vienna. There he was renamed Duke of Reichstadt and carefully tutored in Hapsburg history and culture. Although he hoped to someday have a realm of his own, he was to die of tuberculosis in July 1832 at the age of 21.
