Eugene Napoleon Foundation

Ready for a little French history? You probably know Napoleon, the French politician who came into power in 1799 and became emperor in 1804, until his fall in 1815. You may not know his nephew Louis Napoleon Bonaparte who also ran France a few years later under the name of Napoleon the 3rd. He had a wife, Eugénie, and a son, whose name was Eugène Napoleon. Eugénie created a foundation in the name of her son in 1858, a few years after he was born. This foundation is located in the 12th arrondissement, and I discovered it only today, by  pure coincidence ! It’s a beautiful building.
