  Despite his love for these strong women, Napoleon was a misogynist, with a particular distaste for the articulate, assertive and politically involved women of post-revolutionary France. NAPOLEON. III. AND THE WOMEN HE LOVED LOUIS NAPOLEON BONAPARTE. 1\ i,S4() APOLEON. AND THE WOMEN HE III. LOVED BY. HECTOR FLEISCHMANN Author of " Pauline Bonaparte and Her Lovers "TRANSLATED BY DR. A. S. RAPPOPORT. With 1 8 Illustrations and Facsimile Letters. LONDON HOLDEN & HARDINGHAM ADELPHI. TABLE OF CONTENTS BOOK THE FIRST THE LOVE .   What Napoleon said about women. Napoleon held a traditional view of women’s capabilities and the role of women in society. He acknowledged that women could be strong, and he regarded them as powerful insofar as they were capable of seducing men, but he did not believe that women were as intelligent as men. On J , Emperors Napoleon III and Franz Joseph I engaged in the Battle of Solferino, commanding a combined total of about , troops onto the field for a single day of battle. Nea were either dead, injured, or missing, many of whom were simply left to die on the battlefield.

Napoleon III, Baguley observes, could well have been the central character, or temperament, in a naturalist most historians consider Louis Napoléon’s coup d’état of December to be his boldest endeavor, Baguley shows in this expansive and eloquent work that his most extravagant venture was to found a second Napoleonic. A truly disappointing book that focuses on everything other than what matters about the life of Napoleon III. Endless pages devoted to discussing his sex life and mistresses, the house he bought as a "bolt hole" in England, and the possible cause of his death -- far more on each of these matters than on the principal events of his 20+ years ruling s: Bausset definitely did admire Napoleon—not blind hero-worship by any means, but he was somebody who saw Napoleon for what he was. This book explodes many of the myths about Napoleon being a vicious and unpleasant individual. Instead, he comes across as a good employer, a witty man, and someone who had normal human emotions. Although passionately in love with Josephine, the widow of Beneral de Beauharnais whom he married after her husband was guillotined; Napoleon was a reactionary pragmatist regarding women. To solidify his hold on Europe and to establish a French imperial dynasty, he divorced Josephine and married Marie Louise, the Archduchess of Austria.
