Short biography
Princess Caroline Murat was born in Bordentown, New Jersey, USA, to Prince Napoleon Lucien Charles Murat, Prince de Ponte Corvo, and his American wife Caroline Georgina Fraser. Her paternal grandparents were Joachim Murat, King of Naples and his queen, Caroline Bonaparte, a sister of the Emperor Napoleon. Caroline's father had been forced to flee Italy after his father was defeated and executed by Ferdinand IV of Naples. The Murats were eventually permitted to return to France. She came to know her royal Bonaparte relatives, including the Emperor Napoleon III, Empress Eugénie, and their son; the Countess de Castiglione; Pauline de Metternich; and many other famous figures of the French Second Empire. In 1850, Caroline married Charles, Baron de Chassiron, a French aristocrat. Her second marriage was in 1872 to John Lewis Garden, a wealthy Englishman. She lived at Redisham Hall in Suffolk and wrote her memoirs, published posthumously in 1910.
