SUBALBUM:  Caroline Murat, née Bonaparte

Letizia Ramolino-Bonaparte produced a number of gorgeous daughters, including Caroline who married Joachim Murat, one of Napoleon's generals. Napoleon made them King and Queen of Naples in 1808; he was executed in 1815 and she fled to Austria. The absence of Italian artists is noteworthy in this album. She was educated with Empress Joséphine's daughter Hortense at a school run by Jeanne Campan. Joséphine persuaded Napoleon to allow Caroline and Joachim to marry whereupon Caroline plotted against Joséphine (sounds like President Obama trying to work with USA Republicans).

According to her Wikipedia article, René Auberjonois, who played Father Mulcahy in the Korean War anti-war comedy movie M*A*S*H as well as other roles, is her great-great-great-grandson.
