Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From 1853 to 1870 Eugenie de Montijo was the world's most powerful woman. Empress of the French, she shared the Second Empire with her husband, Napoleon III, so impressing the Prussian Chancellor Bismarck that he called her 'the only man in Paris'. In the first biography of her for many years, Desmond Seward recreates the nerve-racking politics and glittering social world of her empire, and gives an often startling reassessment of an extraordinary life that began in a tent at Granada during an earthquake.

This biography charts the dramatic rise and fall of the Second Empire and of the fascinating woman at its heart. It will be a captivating read for anyone interested in the history of France or in women's history.

Synopsis:

From 1853 to 1870 Eugenie de Montijo was Empress of the French, sharing the Second Empire with her husband Napoleon III. She impressed the Prussian Chancellor Bismarck so much that he called her 'The only man in Paris'. In sharp contrast to Queen Victoria, who met and admired her, and whose power was controlled by a constitutional monarchy, Eugenie influenced the policy of her husband, for over 17 years, at times, when he was at war, standing in for him as Regent. As crowned dictator, Napoleon's actions, and Eugenie's, affected the course of history throughout Europe and America.
