Prince Napoleon marries Princess Clohilde of Savoy in Turin

On this day, Prince Napoleon, the cousin of French Emperor Napoleon III of France, married Princess Maria Clotilde of Savoy, daughter of King Victor Emmanuel II of Peidmont-Sardinia, in Turin. Commentary at the time centered on how this union further signaled the growing alliance between France and anti-Austrian Italian sentiment for a united Italy. The couple produced three children but separated in 1870. (By John Osborne)
