The life of Josephine, first Empress of the French, was certainly full of ups and downs. She was born in Martinique and had already had two children and been widowed before becoming the wife of General Bonaparte. Life before Bonaparte: tossed by the waves of fortune. 1. . Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 1ed Life of Empress Josephine Napoleon Bonaparte France Portraits Hartley Empress Josephine was the notable first wife of Napoleon Bonaparte; who became Empress of France and held a number of other royal titles including Queen Consort of Italy in the early 19th-century.

The life of the Empress Josephine by Headley, P. C., , Miller, Orton & Mulligan edition. In actuality, Josephine's life was far darker, for her celebrated allure was fading, her wealth was compromised by massive debt, and her marriage was corroded by infidelity and abuse. Josephine's life story was as turbulent as the age-an era of revolution and social upheaval, of the guillotine, and of frenzied hedonism/5(7).

Josephine Tascher de la Pagerie, born a Creole on the island of Martinique in the French West Indies, became one of the best known and most envied women who ever lived. Sent to France to make an advantageous marriage to a young aristocrat, her naivete and lack of education left her ill prepared to deal with the sophisticated - if decadent. Andrea Stuart's telling of the life of the Empress Josephine is wonderfully entertaining and very telling. I have been fascinated by the story of Napoleon and Josephine since I was 13 years old am always looking for new information on the subjects and their lives.
