Availability: In stock

Born in Baltimore to a wealthy family in 1785, Elizabeth Patterson shook local and Parisian society when she wed Jerome Bonaparte, brother of Emperor Napoleon. Insisting on a better future for his brother, the emperor annulled the marriage, but not before it produced a son, Jerome Napoleon Bonaparte, Betsy's quest to win royal status for her son and grandsons consumed the remainder of her ninety-four years, decades that transformed her from the glamorous "belle of Baltimore" to a shrewd and successful businesswoman determined to protect her family.
