Carol Berkin: Wondrous Beauty

Program: 
Host: 
Date: 
Thursday, March 6, 2014 - 10:30am

Elizabeth “Betsy” Patterson Bonaparte was a Baltimore legend, one of America’s first international celebrities. A remarkable beauty, she married the charming and spoiled Jérôme Bonaparte of France when she was only seventeen but was quickly abandoned by him thanks to the wishes of Napoleon and the French Government. From that moment on, Betsy lived an incredible  life, a self-made woman who would have nothing to do with petty romance again. She traveled back and forth  to Europe, dismissing her many would be suitors along the way. But that is only part of Betsy’s amazing story. Tune in tonight to Inquiry when we speak with historian and writer CAROL BERKIN. She is currently the Baruch Presidential Professor of History. Her latest biography is titled WONDROUS BEAUTY: THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF ELIZABETH PATTERSON BONAPARTE
