Memoirs of the Courts of Europe- Empress Josephine by Madame De Remusat, pg.19
‘I saw his mother when she was presented at the Imperial Court, where she at first excited the jealousy of Mme, Bonaparte; but after the divorce she became the intimate friend of the repudiated Empress at Malmaison, whither she often brought her son. It is said that she was faithful to the Emperor in his misfortunes, and that she visited him more than once at the Isle of Elba.’
I just love the details in this precious book. Mme Remusat, I must say was quite opinionated besides being well-spoken;)
