Free Landmark Lecture: A Remarkable Friendship @ Tudor Place HIstoric House & Garden
Apr 23 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte and Martha Custis Williams Carter, A Remarkable Friendship, presented by Alexandra Deutsch, Vice-President of Collections & Interpretation, Maryland Historical Society

Although the story of Elizabeth Bonaparte’s marriage to Napoleon Bonaparte’s youngest brother has long been celebrated, her end-of-life friendship with Martha Custis Williams Carter, longtime resident of Tudor Place, is rarely noted. Between 1875 and 1879, Bonaparte and Carter formed a unique relationship which is well documented in the pocket-sized diaries Carter maintained.

Filled with remarkable details about Elizabeth Bonaparte’s life, Carter’s diaries proved to be one of the most important sources used by Alexandra Deutsch for her book, A Woman of Two Worlds: Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte.

Join us to explore the story of this unique friendship between these highly educated, intuitive, and intriguing women whose lives provide a fascinating window into the nineteenth century.

Alexandra Deutsch is the Vice-President of Collections & Interpretation at the Maryland Historical Society. Her book on Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte is the culmination of her research and presentation of the nationally acclaimed exhibit at MHS-“Woman of Two Worlds: Elizabeth Patterson Bonaparte and Her Quest for an Imperial Legacy.” The exhibit is ongoing at the museum in Baltimore.
