Memoirs of the Prince of Joinville

-

Description

An admiral of the French navy, son of Louis Phillippe, Duke of Orléans (also known as the last king of France), husband to Princess Francisca of Brazil, prolific painter, artist, and writer- these are just a few of the many hats worn by François-Ferdinand-Philippe-Louis-Marie d'Orléans, prince de Joinville. This book is a fascinating window into a remarkable life. He recounts the splendour of royal banquets, the immaculate schooling of the privileged, the heartbreak of battle, the romance and intrigue of life in the palace and much more, including episodes of friendships with the intellectual elite in Paris. If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like to be a French royal immediately after the fall of the dictatorship of Napoleon, the Prince gives us a front-row seat by sharing with us his memoirs.
