Yes, and she was very conceited. I don't like the woman, but I absolutely love her theatrical photographs

I remember to read that she was also jealous of a gipsy mistress that he had

Some time ago brownsing the "Musee d`orsay" webpage i found this image. I thought it was a young Napoloen III but it turned to be one of his illegitimate kids.

This is the count of Orx



The resemblance is incredible!!

Yes, these discussions about the Prince Imperial's father's mistresses and his mother's reaction to them surely belong in the Napoleon and Eugenie thread.

I've been reading again I book I have on Napoleon and Eugenie, and found nothing about this. I think it's unlikely because at that time gipsies were considered really low class.
About Eugenie, I think that her feelings were not jealousy, but humilliation and disgust instead. She was humilliated by her husband's affaires because all the court gossiped about them, and she wanted to be respected since she was the empress. For instance, Napoleon began his relationship with the countess of Castiglione when Eugenie was in the last stages of her pregnancy, and it lasted for about a year. What woman wouldn't be angry? And disgust, because she didn' t like the idea of sex, as Katy said before, and couldn't understand how Napoleon couldn't refrain his sexual impulses. He was a very sex driven man. She once said that she didn't understand how men could be thinking all the time in IT, and that all men were the same. Eugenie had a very romantic idea of love, for her it was something spiritual rather than physical.
I've also read something interesting: Eugenie's first love, his later brother in law the duke of Alba, was asexual, he had no interest in sex, and was described as "ethereal". Unfortunately the book doesn't cite any sources on this.

Other important mistresses were the actress Rachel, the english Mrs Howard, Marguerite Bellanger, Louise de Mercy-Argenteau, and Countess Walewska, his cousin Walewski's wife. This woman apparently was very manipulative and conniving, and she presented herself to Eugenie as a true friend while having an affair with Napoleon, and cared nothing about being caught; even Walewski found both of them in inappropiate circunstances more than once.

Thank you very much for the info Veronica. I read on a site that Napoleon III was considered a person "tormented on flesh", that was noticeable even  when he met Eugenie he wanted to make her his mistress (a quite famous event) of course she didn't accept preffering marriage.

I donjt think he wanted to make him his mistress, he just wanted to "try the milk before buy the cow" ;-D

I was quite interested about the topic of Eugenie and Napoleon III (and his mistresses) and I found that there is a book named "PasiĆ³n Imperial" (Imperial Passion) that apparently is serious and has some kind of sources about the real life of the Empress Eugenie. According with the info posted below and comparing it with the short summary of the book there is a great difference. On the book she is described like some sort of prostitute...
Here is the link... and I wonder what do you think... honestly I don't believe so.

It's in Spanish.

for the reviews i read in an spanish forum about royalty , the whole novel is rubbish and the writter, a bad one. I dont know, i d like to waste some of my time reading that book to have an opinion about it, but if it says that eugenie was a kind of prostitute, im sure will agree with those reviews!
