Ambition and Desire: The Dangerous Life of Josephine Bonaparte

Kate Williams

CNN’s royal historian and author of Becoming Queen Victoria (2010) presents the rags-to-riches story of Josephine Bonaparte (1763-1814), wife of Napoleon. Born Marie-Josephe on the island of Martinique, she dreamed of escaping to Paris. After a loveless marriage to a French aristocrat who was executed during the Reign of Terror, she survived prison and the guillotine only to find herself at the forefront of Parisian society after the French Revolution. Josephine’s life changed forever when she was introduced to the future Emperor Napoleon. Their marriage was powerful yet tumultous--and a tragic turn of events led to her undoing.
