“France, armée, tête d' armée, Joséphin"
the last words of Napoleon Bonaparte as he died in exile on the island of St.Helena...
No matter how great you are
You always remember your true love
And never forget
Napoleon Bonaparte led a war and yet wrote poetry and a romantic novel for his love Josephine......
He locked himself in the room and didnt come out for days when he heard of her demise
He was a man hardened by battle used to seeing death and never feared it
Yet the sorrow of the loss tears him apart
Allegedly this is what affected him for the rest of his life and he died a broken man in his 50s after conquering all of europe and destroying beast nations of russia...yet it was the memories of his love that ate away at #soul#art#josephine#word#love#writer#writersofinstagram#truelove#napoleon
