Napoleon’s heir weds

History repeats itself, and Napoleon’s heir, Jean-Christophe Napoleon Bonaparte, married Austrian Countess Olympia Von Arco-Zinneberg.

In 1810, Napoleon himself had married Maria Louisa of Austria in order to improve political relations between France and Austria as a good ally in the war against Russia and the United Kingdom.

Jean-Christophe and Olympia tied the knot at Invalides in Paris, Napoleon’s burial place, and later celebrated  their special day with a sumptuous ceremony at the Fontainbleau Palace, where the French leader had lived.

The couple declared their marriage is based on love for each other, and is not a marriage of convenience.

Jean-Christophe is the great-grandson of the French military leader.
