Napoleon , II [pictures] [edit]
Born: 1811-03-20
Death: 1832-07-22
He was the king of Rome (1811-1814), the Prince of Parma (18141818) and later the Duke of Reichstadt. His father Napoleon's abdication in 1815 was in favour of his son, so that he was known to the Bonapartists as Napoleon II, although he never ruled. After 1815, he was a virtual prisoner in Austria, where he died of tuberculosis. In 1940, his remains were transferred, as a gift to France from Adolf Hitler, from Vienna to the dome of the Invalides in Paris, where he now rests beside his father. His mother was Marie Louise.
