1st Edition. Very interesting account of how a lowly born Frenchman became the founder of the current ruling royal dynasty of Sweden. The book describes Bernadottes exploits during the Napoleonic wars, why he became so popular among the peoples of Europe and his disagreements with Napoleon, who in the end made Napoleon want to get him out of France - at a for Bernadotte very fortunate moment. Contains numerous quotes from actual correspondence between Bernadotte, Napoleon, French ministers and diplomats as well as their counterparts from Sweden. The book is well researched and is easy to read.
