Obituary | Jean-René Aymes (1937-2020)

Jean-René Aymes (Professor at Paris III-Sorbonne Nouvelle) passed away on 8 November 2020, from Covid-19. This specialist in Spain and Franco-Spanish relations in the 18th and 19th centuries published numerous books and articles on both sides of the Pyrenees, such as La déportation des espagnols sous le Premier Empire. Les Espagnols en France (1808-1814) [The deportation of the Spaniards during the First Empire. The Spaniards in France (1808-1814)] or L'image de la France en Espagne de 1808 à 1850 [The image of France in Spain from 1808 to 1850], etc. His best-known work, published for the first time in 1975 and updated several times, is La guerra de la Independencia en Espana [The Spanish War of Independence]. Translated from the outset into French, it was republished once again in 2003 by the Fondation Napoléon et Nouveau Monde éditions under the title L'Espagne contre Napoléon [Spain against Napoleon].

Professor Aymes was a regular visitor to our library [the Bibliothèque Martial Lapeyre], and continued to participate in numerous colloquia and collective works. Whilst not strictly speaking a "Napoleonist", he greatly contributed to the knowledge of the "Iberian" aspects of Consulate and Empire politics.

To his family, the Fondation Napoléon extends its sincere condolences.

Heritage | The Emperor's barge is unveiled to the public!

The French Musée de la Marine’s most emblematic and imperial item, a barge built for Napoleon in 1810, and later embellished for Napoleon III, was moved in late 2018 from Paris to the Ateliers des Capucins in Brest, where over two months this summer it has been restored with the help of the Fondation Napoléon.

Since 11 December, visitors can admire the 62-foot barge from all possible angles, thanks to an ingenious installation including a mirror that hangs above it and video displays beneath.

▶️ The stunning images in this short video (3-minutes) are sure to whet your appetite!

-- CANOT UN JOUR... --

Le Musée national de la Marine restera fermé pour les vacances de Noël, il sera toutefois présent sur les réseaux.

Pour cette fin d'année, quelques belles images du Canot de l'empereur dans son nouvel écrin aux Ateliers des Capucins à Brest. Avec lui, les collections du musée restent accessibles en cette période !

📅 #OTD | 16 December 1858: a secret agreement signed between Napoleon III and Victor Emmanuel II.

Following a secret meeting in the Vosges spa town of Plombières in July 1858, a military agreement between Napoleon III and Victor Emmanuel II was reached. It was officially dated mid-December 1858 and was drawn up in detail in January 1859. The arranged marriage between the Prince Napoleon and Victor Emmanuel II's daughter, Clothilde which would take place on 30 January 1859 in Turin, strengthened the relationship between the two crowns, and partly explains Napoleon III's action against Austria to help his Piedmontese ally a few months later.

#OTD 15 December 1840 | "Retour des Cendres de Napoléon"
"O frozen sky! and sunlight pure! shining bright in history!
Funereal triumph, Imperial torch!
Let the people's memory hold you forever,
Day beautiful as glory,
Cold as the tomb".
Victor Hugo in "Les Rayons et les Ombres, 1840" - 🇬🇧.

[🇫🇷: "Ciel glacé ! soleil pur ! Oh ! brille dans l’histoire ! / Du funèbre triomphe, impérial flambeau ! / Que le peuple à jamais te garde en sa mémoire / Jour beau comme la gloire, / Froid comme le tombeau."].

Victor Hugo’s powerful poetry depicts that memorable day of 15 December 1840. Despite the fact that the temperature never rose above minus 10 degrees Celsius, a huge crowd of spectators gathered in Paris to see Napoleon’s coffin arriving in Paris.

Obituary | Susan Conner (1947-2020)
We are very sad to announce that Dr Susan Conner, scholar of Napoleon and friend of the Fondation Napoléon, died of throat cancer on 28 November 2020.
She was born and reared in Madison, Wisconsin until 1959. Graduating from Armstrong State College (Georgia), magna cm laude, in 1969, she began her master's and doctoral studies in 1972, at the Institute for Napoleon and the French Revolution at Florida State University under Donald D. Horward.
She was awarded an NDEA Fellowship and other grants, and spent nearly six months in France on her dissertation research on Laure Junot, Duchesse d'Abrantès. She then went on to have a distinguished academic career first as a tenured professor at Tift College in Forsyth, Georgia, and then at Central Michigan University in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan where she was named Professor of History emerita and joined the ranks of the administration as Associate Dean of the College of Humanities, Social & Behavioral Science. She continued her career as Vice-President for Academic Affairs at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida, and Provost and Professor of History at Albion College in Albion, Michigan from which she retired in 2014. Though she published widely, including the book, The Age of Napoleon (2004), she was also recognised for teaching excellence. She was a conscientious director of the Consortium on the Revolutionary Era and sat on the boards of the Masséna Society (alongside Victor André Masséna Prince d’Essling and Peter Hicks) and of the Napoleonic Historical Society.

Victor-André Masséna, Thierry Lentz, Peter Hicks and the entire Fondation Napoléon team sends it sincere condolences to Ronald J. Conner, her husband of fifty-two years, and all her family, friends and colleagues. She will be sorely missed.

✨ Imperial Advent Calendar | After the fall of the Empire in 1815, Napoleonic emblems were banned. The Eagle and the Tricolour flag were no longer to be brandished by the army. The Second French Empire, in memory of victories past, brought back the Eagle as the symbol of the State and the Army.
