Coins of this type were issued from 1852 to 1870 inclusive. Charles Louis Napoleon Bonaparte was born on the 20th April 1808 and died on the 9th January 1873.
He was the son of King Louis Bonaparte of Holland, a younger brother of Napoleon Bonaparte. His mother was Hortense de Beauharnais, daughter of Napoleon's first wife Josephine.Under Napoleon III, France pursued an active foreign policy, by challenging Russia's influence in the Ottoman Empire, successfully participating in the Crimean War, and launching a naval expedition in 1858 to punish the Vietnamese and force them to accept a French presence in the country. Paris was substantially rebuilt under Napoleon III, to reduce the ability of future revolutionaries to challenge the government. Large sections of the city were razed and the old convoluted streets were replaced with many broad avenues, with the intent of allowing the cannon to be used easily within the city. He also directed the building of the French railway network.
Hoping to achieve military glory to match his uncle Louis and forced by the diplomacy of the German chancellor Otto Von Bismarck, Napoleon began the Franco-Prussian War in 1870. In the battle against Prussia in July 1870 the Emperor was captured at the Battle of Sedan (September 2) and was deposed by the forces of the Third Republic in Paris two days later. He died in exile in England on January 9, 1873.Married to Empress Eugenie, a Spanish noble of Scottish and Spanish descent, he had one son, Eugene Bonaparte. He is buried in the Imperial Crypt at Saint Michael's Abbey, Farnborough, Hampshire, England. Dates and types of the coin will be randomly picked from available stock.
