In 1807 Prince Jér¶me Bonaparte was created King of Westphalia by his brother, Napoléon I. After the fall of the First Empire he began a long exile in Germany, Austria and Italy. When the Empire was restored, his nephew Napoléon III recognized him as a Prince of the Blood, granted him an enormous allowance and showered honours on him and his children. Overwhelmed with marks of favour and raised to a state of fortune beyond their wildest dreams, the ex-king and his family proved far from grateful to the Emperor and were always all too ready to denounce him as a usurper occupying the place that should, they thought, have been theirs.
 
The ex-king died 24 June 1860 and was buried in Les Invalides.
