"Napoléon Bonaparte — the military and political genius who through might and maneuvering transformed Europe and surrounding territories in the late 18th and early 19th centuries — is one of the most notable historical figures in the history of Western civilization. He rose to prominence during the French Revolution and later played a decisive role in abolishing the French monarchy and replacing it with the Republican National Convention. Amid ongoing dominance throughout Europe as leader of the French military, Napoleon eventually established the French empire, becoming Emperor Napoleon I on December 2, 1804.


As they say, with great power comes great responsibility, and throughout history supreme leaders have time and time again come to the conclusion that the greatest responsibility is to consolidate power in the form of a dynasty. Having conquered all that lay before him, childless Napoléon now turned to the issue of a successor — and proved willing to upturn his personal life to ensure it happened. But the life of his son, François Charles Joseph Bonaparte, known to Bonaparte's supporters as Napoléon II, was ultimately as troubled as it was tragically short. In fact, the child was separated from his father while still an infant and died at the age of just 21 before he had the chance to fulfill his potential or prove to the world that he could continue his father's name.


François Charles Joseph Bonaparte was born on March 20, 1811, in Paris as the first son of Emperor Napoléon I of France and Empress of the French Marie-Louise. As a symbol of the family's enormous power, the child was given the title of King of Rome, a diminutive of his father's title of King of Italy, much of which he had conquered in 1799
