Elisa Napoléone, who was born in the North of Tuscany in Italy, is the daughter of Felix Baciocchi and Elisa Bonaparte, sister of Napoleon 1st, princess of Piombino and Lucca, and Grand Duchess of Tuscany.
On 27 November 1824, she married the Count Filippo Camerata-Passionei di Mazzoleni (1805-1882) in Florence, who gave her a son.
In 1830, she went to Vienna and tried in vain to establish contact with her cousin the Duke of Reischtadt (the son of Napoleon 1st). It was a failure since the young man feared a trap and was distrustful; this episode would be covered by Edmond Rostand, in his play, L’Aiglon, who gave her a role that she never actually played.
When her first cousin Louis-Napoleon came to the throne under the name of Napoleon III, she came to France; first she bought a the château de Viviers-les-Ruines, in Fontenay-Trésigny near Paris.
