  Hortense de Beauharnais - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hortense de Beauharnais, Queen of Holland, Grand Duchess of Berg and Cleves, Countess of Saint-Leu (April 10, 1783 - October 5, 1837), was the wife of Louis Bonaparte, King of Holland and the mother of Napoleon III, Emperor of the French.
Hortense was born in Paris, France, the daughter of Alexandre, Vicomte de Beauharnais and of his wife Josephine Tascher de la Pagerie.
Hortense accompanied her husband to The Hague, in spite of the fact that their marriage was an unhappy one (the identity of the father of at least one of Hortense's sons has been questioned).

 Duc de Morny   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
Charles Auguste Louis Joseph, duc de Morny (October 21, 1811 - March 10, 1865), French statesman, was the natural son of Hortense de Beauharnais (wife of Louis Bonaparte, and queen of Holland) and Charles Joseph, comte de Flahaut, and therefore halfbrother of Napoleon III.
The comte de Morny, as he was called by a polite fiction, served in Algeria in 1834-35 as aide-de-camp to General Camille Alphonse Trezel[?], whose life he saved under the walls of Constantine.
The figure of the duc de Morny is familiar to the general reader in the duc de Mora of Le Nabab of Alphonse Daudet, who had been one of his secretaries.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Napoleon III   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
After the fall of the First Empire, Hortense, who had been separated from her husband, took her two sons to Geneva, Aix in Savoy, Augsburg, and then (1824) to the castle of Arenenberg in Switzerland.
Napoleon then dreamed of settling the affairs of Italy by means of a congress, and Arthur de la Guéronniére's pamphlet, "Le pape et le congrés", demanded of Pius IX, in advance, the surrender of his temporal power.
Thouvenel was supplanted by Drouin de Lhuys (15 October, 1862), who was made to give out a curt statement that the French Government had no present intention of taking any action in consequence of the Durando circular, thus bringing about the fall of the Ratazzi cabinet in Italy.
