I posted this picture also in the thread on Napoleon III., but it fits also here.

This is Eleonore Vergeot, mistress of NIII, who gave him two sons, comte d'Orx and Comte de Labenne:



source: "Napoleon's children" by Susan Normington.

I found one more picture of her, on a site of a castle, where she had been, but the picture is too small. I wrote to the website and I'll see, if one can get it in a bigger version.

She had the large eyes of the Romantic Period. I wonder what sort of personality? Anyway I look forward to the other picture if you can get it larger.

I doubt, if the website will answer me, until now, nothing, but I will be patient. The other portrait is this, but it surely exists bigger.
So I'm waiting :)

little version (I think, this is a wonderful picture, when bigger!):

I got an answer this evening and I was told that there is a book on Eleonore Vergeot by Robert Lamouche with title "Eleonore Vergeot- Pour d'amour d'un Prince", published in 2005. I would like to order it, but there is the lack of the language. I won't understand it, I have to confess, but there seem to be much pictures, and maybe also some more of Eleonore.
I'll see, maybe also any other person is interested in the book. Unfortuntely there does not seem to be any English translation as the editor is a regional one.

Could someone tell me something about Napoleon's love affairs during Russian invasion. I heard he met some women there. Do you know something more about it? Thanks a lot ;-)
