Napoleon and Josephine: A Love Story

In this account of the relationship between Napoleon Bonaparte and his wife, Josephine, the author has incorporated recent findings that include a new view about Napoleon's parents, Josephine's love letters to Hippolyte Charles and speculations about Napoleon's complex sexual orientation. Besotted by Josephine during the early years of their marriage, Napoleon, in the face of her indifference and infidelity, gradually became less obsessed with her and eventually divorced her in 1809 to remarry and produce an heir. Theo Aronson has also written "The King in Love: Edward VII's Mistresses".
