Upon the death of his grandfather,Louis, Prince Napoléon in 1997, the then 11-year-old Prince Jean-Christophe succeeded him as Head of the Imperial House of France instead of his father. In 2019, the Prince married Countess Olympia von und zu Arco-Zinneberg, daughter of Archduchess Maria Beatrice of Austria-Este and Count Riprand von und zu Arco-Zinneberg, at the Cathedral Saint Louis des Invalides in Paris and the couple are expecting their first child later this year. Prince Napoléon represents the dynasty’s heritage at public events and ceremonies around the world, taking a major role in the Battle of Waterloo Bicentenary Celebrations in 2015 and the Bicentenary of the Death of Emperor Napoléon earlier this year. We wish HIH a very Happy Birthday and Many Happy Returns!
