Pauline Bonaparte, Napoleon’s favourite-sister. She was famous for her lovers and notorious sexual appetite. But the only one from the huge ungreatful Bonaparte-clan to visit her brother on Elba.
Tzar Alexander gave the Emperor three sable-furs. Bonaparte wore his during the disastrous retreat from Moschow.
He gave the other fur to his beloved sister Pauline. The last he gave to Désirée Bernadotte - his little ex-fiancé née Eugenie Clary - who he declared eternal love when they were very young.
Josephine was fuming.
