Twice A Princess
Part biography, part history, and all adventure, the life of Catherine Willis Murat leaps from the pages of “Twice a Princess” like a fantasy of Scheherezade. Niece of George Washington, niece of Napoleon Bonaparte, princess consort of the Kingdom of Naples, and a princess of France, this daughter of America remained true to her southern heritage as she blazed across the pages of history with her husband, Prince Achille Murat, nephew of Napoleon and son of his greatest cavalry commander. Together Prince Murat and his unlikely princess joined families, continents, and political powerhouses. In the epiphany of her final years she freed her slaves who freely and out of respect chose to remain with her until death. From rough and tumble frontier Florida to the throne rooms of Europe follow “Princess Kate” through a journey so astounding it scarcely seems real.
