A series of brief entries describing some marriages arranged by Napoleon, not to be taken too seriously.

Okay, so Napoleon was a general, a politician, a lawmaker, a member of the Académie Française even - but how about his activities as a marriage broker? Napoleon has been known to have arranged several marriages during his lifetime, and I really feel this interesting aspect of his career does not quite get the attention it deserves.

Which of course might be due to the fact that Napoleon was by far more successful in war than in matchmaking. Spanish ulcer and Russian campaign not withstanding....
