Napoleon in Love

A non fiction book by

In the summer of 1786, Napoleon met the first of the many beautiful women that would accompany him in his rise to power and fame.

He lived and died a romantic, moving from mistress to mistress in search of the ideal mate.

To the majority he was kind, generous and thoughtful, and their tears moved him to a frenzy of tenderness.

Why, then, did the Emperor who could inspire his soldiers to die with his name on their lips fail to inspire an equal devotion in the hearts of the women so eager for his love?

From penniless artillery man to the height of his power to his exile on St Helena, RL Delderfield explores the women who accompanied Napoleon's rise and fall.

'Napoleon in Love' is the fascinating story of the personal life of one of Europe's most charismatic historical figures.
