In London tonight was the British premiere of Napoleon starring Joaquin Phoenix as the French emperor and Vanessa Kirby as Empress Josephine.

Among the guests on the red carpet were Prince and Princess Napoleon (Jean-Christophe and Olympia).

Prince Jean Christophe, the current head of the family, is the great-great-great-grandnephew of Napoleon I. He is a descendant of Napoleon's younger brother, Prince Jerome, King of Westphalia.  Through his mother, Princess Beatrice of Bourbon-Two Sicilies,  he is a descendant of King Louis XIV of France.

The couple have one son, Prince Louis Charles Riprand Victor Jérôme Marie Napoléon, who was born on December 7, 2022.   

Jean-Christophe is the Co-Founder and Managing Partner at Leon Capital in London.

This article is about the premiere in London. I don’t live in London or even in the United Kingdom. I have no idea what the movie is like because it has not opened in the Washington DC area.
