The House of Napoleon Bonaparte has served France for more than two centuries. Napoleon I, then Napoleon III, modernised the country in depth, while preserving its thousand-year-old roots. By creating the institutional, legal, administrative, economic, educational, cultural and architectural foundations of contemporary France, they also laid the foundations of our democracy.
For me, Napoleon I and Napoleon III embody the idea of progress, the modernist impulse. They were avant-gardists who moved their era forward, characters who built their lives with an incredible freedom in which many saw the sign that everything is one day possible.
I personally wish to preserve the memory of my family, to promote its contributions and to maintain the spirit of commitment and dedication to the service of France that has always guided its actions.
