Giuseppina Grassini

Opera Singer
1773 to 1850

Giuseppina GrassiniAn opera singer, Giuseppina Grassini is likely to have been a lover to both of the greatest generals of the age.

She was one of Napoleon Bonaparte's mistresses and performed at La Scala. In 1814, she was regularly seen around Paris with the Duke of Wellington and, while that is no proof as to a relationship, the great British commander did carry a portrait of her.
