Signed "Henner", this miniature on ivory is an altered copy after the miniature portrait of Napoleon's second wife, Empress Marie-Louise, which was painted ca. 1810 by famous French miniaturist Jean-Baptiste Isabey.
*Marie-Louise (1791-1847) was the eldest daughter of the Austrian Kaiser Franz I. From the time of her youth she was instilled with a strong dislike for France and for Austria's archenemy Napoleon. However, at the age of eighteen, she was confronted with the fact that she shall marry Napoleon as a token of Peace Pledge. This was a plan of Metternich, to which Kaiser Franz had no objections.
Marie Louise and Napoleon I were married on the 1st of April 1810 in the Louvre's Chapel. In 1811 the heir to the throne was born. He was christened with the name Franz Joseph Karl, and received the title of the King of Rome. In 1814 Marie Louise left France and Napoleon, and together with her son returned to Austria.
At the Congress of Vienna her father conferred upon her the duchies Parma, Piacenza, and Guastells, to which she resorted accompanied by count Adalbert Neippberg (1775-1829). Her son stayed in Vienna, and was awarded the title of "Herzog (duke) von Reichstadt" by Kaiser Franz.
Despite still being Napoleon's wife, Marie Louise and count Neippberg had three children (only two reached adult age). It was only after Napoleon's death 1821 that their relationship was made public; they married in the same year.
Five years after the death of Neipperg, in 1834, Marie Louise married her third husband Count Charles-Rene de Bombelles (1780-1843), the minister of Parma Court. After his death, she led a quiet and reserved life in Parma, where she passed away at the age of 56.
