Betsy Bonaparte- The Belle of Baltimore
Baltimore’s high-spirited, independent and controversial Betsy Patterson married Napoleon’s brother Jerome in 1803, bore a son, and defied the angry Emperor. Originally published in France in 1988, this lively biography takes the reader into the intrigues in France and early 19th-century Baltimore.
