Madame Bonaparte receiving Ambassadors at the Tuileries by Felician Myrbach.

From the aquarelle by Felicien baron de Myrbach-Rheinfeld.

Still holding Madame Bonaparte by the hand, Talleyrand would present the members of the corps diplomatique to her, one after another, not mentioning them by name but designating the courts they represented. He then conducted her through the two drawing-rooms. As he was doing this, the first consul would enter unannounced. His dress for such occasions consisted of a very plain uniform coat, white woollen breeches, and top boots. Round his waist he wore a tricoloured silk scarf with a matching fringe, and in his hand he carried his soldier’s black hat. He would move quickly through the company, his simple costume making a striking contrast to the embarrassed coats, the cordons, and the jewels of the ambassadors and foreign dignitaries, even as the simple charm of Josephine’s dress gave her distinction amid the splendor of the ladies surrounding her.

The Malmaison Castle (Château de Malmaison) in Rueil-Malmaison west of Paris was the residence of Emperor Napoleon and his wife Josephine. 1804 began Joséphine, a great lover of flowers (especially the roses, which is why she is also called “Rose Empress”), with the installation of a famous rose garden, which contained all the known varieties of roses to her time at her death.
