Eugenie - Empress of the French by George Upton
The story of Napoleon III Emperor of France from 1852 to 1870 is well told through the life story of Eugenie, his Empress, whom he married for love, rather than political connections. Although their 20 year reign included many triumphs, it ended disastrously as a result of the Franco-Prussian War. Eugenie outlived her husband by nearly 50 years and saw France through a difficult and tumultous half-century.
