Napoleon II: Childhood France

Figure 1.--This portrait show Marie Louise d'Autriche and her son Napoléon François Charles Joseph King of Rome. Her son is still a baby so this was painted in 1811. Notice that on the cushion near to him is e imperial crown.

Napoléon François Joseph Charles Bonaparte was born in Paris to the Emperor and Marie Louise (March 20, 1811). He was as a toddler the succesor to his father. He was given the title of King of Rome in infancy. Napoleon reportedly absolutely adored him. After his birth the Emperor who had been a work-aholic began to devote himself to domestic familiar affairs. He must have been the most pampered child in Europe. We do not yet have information about his clothing. And we have been able to find few other details about his life in Paris.
