Bonaparte Family, Part 2: From Empire to Exile and Back Again (and Again)
February 22, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
A Special event with Maximilian Owre, Lecturer in History and Executive Director, Carolina Public Humanities
This second installment of Max Owre’s 4 lecture series on the Bonaparte family introduces the Bonapartes as sovereigns, statesmen, and ever-squabbling siblings. Learn how the family benefitted from Napoleon’s position as the de facto ruler of Europe, and how its members behaved during his fall. After the empire, the Bonapartes placed their hopes in the next generation, especially Louis-Napoléon Bonaparte, the future Napoleon III.
Attendance at Part 1 is not required.
