About this product
- DescriptionThe Hotel de Beauharnais, constructed in 1713, gained rewn during the Consulate period. In 1803, Josephine Bonaparte acquired the property for her son, Eugene de Beauharnais, and had the building revated and decorated at great expense. At the fall of the Napoleonic Empire, it was sold to the King of Prussia and became an embassy during the nineteenth century. With its unique Consulate and Empire decor, the palace is an invaluable specimen of Parisian interior architecture. The result of more than ten years of research and restoration work, this book recounts three centuries of European political history through the lives of the Hotel's successive owners.
