Thank you a lot for that information @Benjamin, this is very interesting to know! I did not know of all people, who exactly attended the funeral of the archduke. It  seems that they came because of the connection of the Bonapartes with the belgian royal family, even when only distantly related to the descendants of Carl Ludwig. So they really came to Vienna to attend the Vienna before the Kapuzinergruft? As I got the programme of the funeral by a family member of Archduke Carl Ludwig, I know that there were different events, also a soul-mass in Brussels. I would rather imagine that they visited the event in Brussels than in Vienna. Or both?
If you have fore detailled infos, I would be happy. Do you also know anything about pictures? And why did only Jerome and Princess Napoléon come?

I made a mistake: I meant, "so they really came to Vienna to visit the funeral in the Kapuzinergruft?". I taped the word "Vienna" twice, and unfortunately once at a wrong place...

You are very welcome. The information came from the Royals Portal. I am not sure which service they attended (I too would imagine the one in Brussels, though) or why only the two of them were there.

On 29 Jan 2008, the Princess Napoléon was present at the launch of a magazine dedicated to the Second French Empire, Napoléon III. For more info, see here: http://www.napoleon.org/en/fondation/new/index.asp

According to his updated website, Charles Napoléon is now a candidate in the municipal elections (to be held in March) of Nemours.

Thank you very much for giving a link to his new created site. I must confess I didn't look there for quite a long time...but that is indeed interesting that he will be involved in political activites again and will also stand again for elections in the coming months. 
For now I can only say that he definitely knows what he wants and I wish him more luck this time. This charismatic man MUST have success, I always think... :)

Charles Napoléon's "Ensemble pour les Nemouriens" received almost 25% of the vote.

Thank you for that information, I did not follow this during the last time, because I was simply too busy with other things. That is amazing, and I wish him good luck also in future. I hope he will have a chance to expand his political ambitions for his country. Maybe those people, who shout and shouted too early that he does not achieve anything in politics, will once get to know what this man can do. I hope so... ::)


I also like the new picture on his webite:



He is still best looking, even when becoming 58 years this year! What a man! His skin appears still so fine and young, and his smile and eyes are so charming...

Thanks for the link. I knew that video before and it's very interesting, it's under my favourites on youtube. I pity only that the pics are not always too clear. But it's wonderful.

On 20 Apr 2008, several members of the Imperial Family traveled to Farnborough for the bicentenary of the birth of Emperor Napoléon III.

The next day, 21 Apr, the Princess Napoléon was present at a similar event in Paris.

Thank you for the wonderful links, @Benjamin, this is very interesting, I only wished to see more photos of the mentioned family members, like the mentioned Prince Murat, the siblings of Prince Napoléon, and the Duc d'Albufera, who does descend from the Bonapartes as well (line of Bathilde Bonaparte, one of the daughters of the cousins of first grade, Charles Lucien and Zenaide. She died very young, but had two children, of whome Zenaide de Cambaceres is the ancestor of the present Duc d'Albufera.)
If anyone finds more photos, please send the link. Jean Christophe looks nice again, his smile becomes very similar to his father....ohhh this young man...hahaha....even when the pic is a bit small. I will have a closer look at the articles now.
