Elisa Bonaparte

Grand Duchess of Tuscany

Armed with a sharp tongue, Elisa was not a favourite of her brother Napoleon and spent little time in France.

She married a Corsican who became an Italian prince, but split with him in 1805. She agreed to Napoleon's offer that she become Grand Duchess of Tuscany.

After losing her duchy in 1814, Elisa moved to Germany, rejoined her husband and retired to Trieste.
