Ben Townsend on Maria Letizia Buonaparte, founder of a dynasty
Born in 1750 to a modest Corsican family and married at the age of thirteen, she was to become mother of thirteen children. All eight of those children who survived infancy were to become crowned heads of European states. She died in 1836, fifty years after her husband, and fifteen after her most famous son, Napoleon I of France.
