In my readings this morning, I discovered that on this day in 1796 Joséphine de Beauharnais married the famous general Napoléon Bonaparte. Although Beauharnais had been known as “Rose” in her life before Napoléon, it was when he crowned her the First Empress of France that he decided to call her Joséphine instead.
