Who was Eugénie de Montijo ?

Eugénie de Montijo, countess of Teba, was born in Grenada in Spain in 1826 and died in England in 1920. She was the wife of Louis Napoléon Bonaparte, also known as Napoléon III, and the last Empress of France.

She came to France in 1834 and would often spend time with her mother and her sister in Biarritz. She was educated in Paris at the Sacré-Coeur convent, and she also had two renowned tutors: Stendhal and Mérimée.


In 1853 she married Louis Napoléon Bonaparte.

In 1854 Napoléon III built the villa Eugénie at Biarritz for them, which is now known as the Hotel du Palais.

In 1861 the spa resort Eugénie-les-Bains was created and named in her honour.

Empress Eugénie De Montijo in 1857, by Franz Xaver Winterhalter

She was beautiful, cultured and her strong character made advances in women’s rights.  For example, she was involved in allowing Madeleine Brès (first women doctor) to be enrolled in Medical school.

She introduced to the court Marthe-Alice Pouypoudat, a farmer of Les Landes (recognised as one of the first great chefs of France) and her recipe for Pain Farci en Croûte Belle Crinoline. They remained friends. 


Eugénie would be instrumental in the recovery of Alsace Lorraine in 1918, by giving a letter to Clemenceau dating from 1870. The letter was written by the King of Prussia Guillaume 1st, and was proof that Alsace Lorraine had been annexed by the Germans.
