Born Marie-Joseph Rose Tascher de la Pagerie, Josephine had an exceptional destiny. First, married to Alexandre de Beauharnais, who was beheaded during the French Revolution, the mother of two children, she survived the Terror. Then, mistress to several leading politicians, she met young Bonaparte who fell in love with her and married her. Empress of the French, she helped her ambitious husband‘s bid for power and political transformation with dedication.

The Bonaparte’s family attitude towards Josephine, her life at Malmaison and Bois Préau, her children will all be evoked, as well as her taste for beauty and luxury.
