1st Edition. Clear, thorough and intriguing. A fascinating life story that is generally unknown, of a man born in obscurity in Pau, but who rose to become one of Napoleon's rivals, then an uneasy rival, and by the oddest of circumstances, the founder of the Swedish ruling dynasty, whose descendants are still to be found in most European royal families. A life almost as dramatic as that of the great Bonaparte himself.
