UUPs, I see now that I was wrong ;D Now where I copy the page I see the whole article and one more picture of Charles´wife... :D
It seems also that Charles relation to his son can´t be too bad because they are discussing about politics as the article says. The article is very informative!

It seems as though Caroline is very close to her mother. I read on another royal board (http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums/620768-post102.html) that the two attended a Louis Vuitton function recently.

Thanks for that information. Anybody knows in which number of the PdVs it was? The other board says "from last week", which was it?

It´s really a pity that I never achieved to interview him...even his brother doesn´t respond!

Charles seems to be very busy at the moment. Just take a look at the new logo of his website....:





(www.charlesnapoleon.com)

He is evidently working togehter with another man, I have never heard the other name. But I am not very good at french politics... ::)

Election day in France,click on "French decide on Sarkozy's mandate",and see who pops up....

Btw,Francois Bayrou was running for president along with Segolène Royale and Sarkozy Britt.

From today's edition of my local paper:

Napoleon's sword goes on auction block
FONTAINEBLEAU, France (AP)--After more than 200 years in the family, the gold-encrusted sword Napoleon carried into battle in Italy will be auctioned off Sunday, across the street from one of his imperial castles.
The intricately decorated blade is 32 inches long and curves gently--an inspiration he drew from his Egyptian campaign, said auctioneer Jean-Pierre Osenat. It has an estimated value of at least $1.6 million.

It´s amazing! Thanks for the info! Do you know, or does anybody know, which family members of Napoleon inheritated this sword, and who decided to sell it??  Was it inheritated by the lines of the Princes Napoleon? As far as I know Baudouin de Witt, son of Clothilde Napoléon, and therefore cousin to Charles also heritated a lot of napoleonic things, and some time ago they opened the Pommerie as Napoleon Museum to show many of those things to the publicity, but despite of that I don´t think that was the owner of the sword. Does anybody know more?

Thanks ;)

Instead of the estimate,it fetched 4.8 million euro's,so that's way over 6 mll.$.The Emperor used the sword at the battle of Marengo where he defeated the Austrians in june 1800.

I think, Charles Napoleon  has found his Waterloo. He has lost for these elections in Legislative assembly. ;D
I read the party of Nicola Sarkozy is in the lead absolutely in all districts  :D

Not quite the Waterloo you hope for Dmitri,he was one of a thousand in the same district hoping for a vote as you can gather from the link I posted.He'll be running next time around.Pas de problem. :)

Nicolas Sarkozy's right wing party won 39.5% of the votes,enough to support his overhaul of France,which is a good thing.But then,appearing in a state in this clip isn't sitting well.Sarko drunk as a skunk after a meeting with Vladimir last week during the G8 summit,Germany,while always proclaiming he doesn't drink alcoholic beverages,not even wine.The clip wasn't/isn't aired on french national tv,for obvious reasons... :P:

Hi All,

Sorry to go back to earlier discussions. But I was wondering whether anyone knows much about the life of Marie Bonaparte? Britt, I believe that you spoke to her grandson? He sounds fascinating. Did he have anything to say about his grandmother?

The article is from 7 th of June, and now we have the 11th, it is really already sure that Charles "lost" and did not come into the parliament, as Dmitry said, or did I understand anything wrong?? Thanks for clarifying this up.
