Clary Desiree

Clary Desiree (1774—1860)

One of the most sought after women of her time, Desiree Clary was the daughter of wealthy parents and went on to become Queen of Sweden. Initially courted by Joseph Bonaparte, she became engaged to him before becoming romantically involved with his brother Napoleon. Again engaged, she was also approached by other leading French soldiers in General Junot and General Marmont. Despite the offers put to her she married General Bernadotte and, when he was adopted by the childless King of Sweden, became royalty. Her son became King Oscar I of Sweden and the royal house she helped begin still reigns today.
