Napoleon Bonaparte’s romance novella to be released in English

Published on May 8th, 2009 | by Admin


The first English version of Napoleon Bonaparte’s romantic novella, Clisson et Eugénie, is due out in bookstores this fall.

The manuscript was written when he was an ambitious young soldier aged 26, shortly before he made his name by smashing a royalist coup in Paris in 1795. It tells the story of a brilliant young soldier who loves, loses and dies heroically in battle “pierce by a thousand blows.”

Inspiration for the novel was the general’s love affair with Bernardine Eugénie Désirée Clary, whose sister married his brother Joseph.
