Malmaison The castle of my grandmother
This book is a stroll through the castle of Malmaison...
The 6-year-old little prince who takes us there really existed. Louis-Napoleon knew this enchanting place and spent some delicious moments there. His impressions, his emotions, his reflections, told by the people close to him during his stays, are staged and allow young readers to discover a refined art of living and a page of our history.
The Little Prince's parents were Louis Bonaparte, younger brother of Emperor Napoleon I, and Hortense de Beauharnais, the daughter Josephine had had from her first marriage. Josephine was the wife of Emperor Napoleon I and in 1814 owned the Malmaison.
Prince Louis-Napoleon became Emperor Napoleon III thirty-eight years after the facts recounted here.
