Dynastic marriage: Descendant of Napoleon Bonaparte married
Last weekend, the wedding of Jean-Christophe Napoleon Bonaparte, a descendant of Napoleon Bonaparte I, and Countess Olympia von Arco-Zinnerberg, great-granddaughter of the last Austrian king Charles I. This marriage allowed the former Imperial House of France and the House of Habsburgs to reunite.
The couple’s wedding took place in Paris, in the Les Invalides (it was here that Napoleon was buried). Some consider this union to be nothing more than a dynastic marriage, however, the groom himself in an interview with one of the authoritative publications categorically denied this.
The bride wore a lace dress with an Oscar de la Renta cape. The look was complemented by a family heirloom, the tiara of Olympia’s mother, and earrings with diamonds and sapphires.
The wedding was attended by representatives of the royal houses of Europe: Edoardo Mapelli-Mozzi with Princess Beatrice, Nikolai von Bismarck, Prince Paul with his daughter Olympia and others.
