“How can an ordinary painter become an Emperor,” he asked incredulously.

Lenormana started laughing and said, “You are no painter. You are a warrior and an army officer.”

This painter was none other than Bernadotte, a Marshal in Napolean’s army. IN 1818, he became king of Norway and Sweden. He ruled till 1844. Though Bernadotte did not send 10,000 francs to Lenormana in his life time, he left directions in his will that this amount be paid to her.

On December 11, 1809, ‘the police arrested Lenormana. The details of that day are recorded in police records. We give below excerpts from the same.
