Dates

  • Existence: 1768 - 1844

Joseph-Napoléon Bonaparte, Comte de Survilliers, (7 January 1768 – 28 July 1844) was a French lawyer and diplomat, the older brother of Napoleon Bonaparte, who made him King of Naples and Sicily (1806–1808, as Giuseppe I), and later King of Spain (1808–1813, as José I). After the fall of Napoleon, Joseph styled himself Comte de Survilliers. Joseph lived primarily in the United States (where he sold the jewels he had taken from Spain) in the period 1817–1832 initially in New York City and Philadelphia, where his house became the centre of activity for French expatriates, but later moved to an estate, formerly owned by Stephen Sayre, called Point Breeze in Bordentown, New Jersey.
