If this was an attempt to place Marie Louise in a better light than history has hereto placed her, it failed miserably. The only thing that it shows she was clever about was hiding her illegitimate children, & her second & third marriages from her family.
Neither does it dispel the low opinions of her treatment & utter isolation of he eldest child, the King of Rome. The old theory out of sight, out of mind in regards to her relationship to Bonaparte, sure rings true from the pages. After Bonapartes exile, it seems that Marie Louises only concern was her possession of Parma & her illicit affair with Neipperg.
