Chabanne, L - L \'Impératrice Eugénie exhibitioncatalogue
María Eugenia Ignacia Augustina Palafox de Guzmán Portocarrero y Kirkpatrick, 9th Countess of Teba (Granada, May 5, 1826 - Madrid, July 11, 1920) was a Spanish countess who became the last Empress of France through her marriage to Napoleon III. One hundred years ago, on July 11, 1920, she died. The exhibition at Chateau de Compiègne shows the exceptional journey she has traveled from her native Andalusia to the imperial French throne, then to exile, mourning and resilience. In an effort to evoke above all woman, her feelings and the evolution of her character, the authors, Laure Chabanne, Heritage Curator and Gilles Grandjean, Chief Heritage Curator, emphasize a strong and engaging personality in the French history. Photographer Pascaline Noack's gaze at the collections of the Château de Compiègne accompanies this journey in the footsteps of Eugenie. An important center of court life under the reign of Napoleon III, the castle has preserved some of their apartments. It also houses two museums dedicated to the Second Empire. The unpublished photos taken for this book bring to life the many memories of the Empress found there. Hardback edition, French language, 208 pages, fully illustrated, size 22x30cm.
