The Marmottan-Monet Museum Investigates Napoleon's Sisters

From 03 October 2013 to 26 January 2014

Three of history's most powerful siblings

At the Musée Marmottan-Monet, three historical figures are being explored like never before. Although everyone knows the name Napoleon Bonaparte, many people are unaware of his sisters and the manner in which the emperor bestowed power upon them in order to maintain contacts throughout the diverse regions encompassed by his empire.

The Musée Marmottan-Monet hopes to change that with an exhibition called 'Les Soeurs de Napoléon' — The Sisters of Napoleon. This exhibit will illustrate the world of Pauline, Elisa and Caroline, siblings to Napoleon and actors of his empire. The exhibit presents approximately 140 personal objects, including portraits, sculptures and accessories.

With these items, the museum retraces the story of the three women, as they grow up and assume strategic posts assigned to them by their brother — whose strategy began when he arranged the marriages of his sisters to important Italian princes and generals.

However, the women were more than just political pawns. They went on to use their power to disseminate artistic and scientific culture within their domains. In 1805, their assistance enabled Napoleon to peaceably become the king of Italy, and Elisa became Napoleon's representative in the country.

Therefore, the three sisters are interesting historical figures with complicated links to power as a result of their brother's actions. Visitors to Paris can discover the women in an artistic setting at the Marmottan-Monet Museum.
