[ Rose (Rosa 'Eugene de Beauharnais') | Posted on July 1, 2018 ]

'Eugène de Beauharnais' (Int. 1838) was named for Prince Eugène de Beauharnais, (Eugène de Beauharnais) -- a French Prince, Prince of Venice, Grand Duke of Frankfurt, Duke of Leuchtenberg, Prince of Eichstätt --- the first child and only son of Alexandre de Beauharnais and Joséphine Tascher de la Pagerie, first wife of Napoleon I.

His father lost his life in The Terror ... his mother went on to become the first wife of Napoleon Bonaparte.

He was apparently quite an able general, thought by many to be the most able of all family members of Napoleon. He was an amateur botanist of some note -- And he must have inspired some love, since his rose was introduced in 1838, long after his death at age 42, in 1824.
