La Emperatriz Eugenia de Montijo, 1826-1920, nacida en Espana, llego a ser Emperatriz de Francia al casarse con Napoleon 3. Una mujer con una vida fascinante que vivio el maximo apogeo en Paris durante el reinado de su marido. Tras esta epoca de brillo, le sobrevivio la muerte de su marido y su hijo y el exilio en Francia, no dejo de mostrarse positiva
