    • 24.11.1782 granted scholarship at St Cyr;
      22.6.1784 at St cyr with her father

      Elisa went from 24.11.1782 until august 1792 to school at St. Cyr near Paris. On this elegant boarding school for the daughters of the poor military nobility only two or three places (of 150) were available for Corsican girls. The girls were supposed to stay there until they were 20 years old but in 1792 St Cyr was suppressed. Napoleon brought her home to Corsica in that year but in 1793 the family had to flee from Corsica to France when the Paolists with help from the english "freed" Corsica and Napoleon turned against Paoli. Although his father Carlo had been a personal friend of Paoli between 1765 and 1769 the Bonaparte family belonged at last to the french side now.
      Between 1793 and 1797 Elisa lived with her mother in or near Marseille.

      Marseille was an independent city-state for several centuries and in the years 1792-1793 opposed the government. After 1793 the city was governed by right-wing military men favoring the royalist point of view. It could perhaps have been possible for English merchant-ships to enter the harbor in the period 1796 - 1798, but only when they were flying neutral flags and carrying false papers.

      In 1795 Napoleon, who was out of favour and pennyless during a short period that year, could borrow 30.000 livres from his friend des Mazis (military school Brienne) to support his mother who lived without means of keeping herself and her younger children. Enemies of the Bonaparte family had no hesitation in saying she solved her problems by turning her house into a brothel !!!
      Elisa married Félix (Pasquale) Bacciochi in Marseille on the first of may 1797. On the 5th of may 1797 her marriage with Felix and that of her sister Pauline with General Leclerc were consecrated in the castle Monbello near Verona. The whole Bonaparte family with Napoleon and Josephine de Beauharnais were there and celebrated the succesfull Italian campaign of Napoleon.

      According to the Dictionnary of National Biographies, volume XVII,p.255-7, Sir Gilbert Elliott, first earl of Minto, 1751-1810 was in charge in Toulon in 1793 and viceroy of Corsica 1794-26 Oct 1796. Nelson came in july 1796 to Ajaccio. Gilbert was educated at Pension Militaire in Fontainebleau with Mirabeau. His father was the third baronet of Minto, his mother:Agnes Dalrymple Murray Kynynmoumnd. His life in 3 vols by his grd-niece was published in 1874.

      In october 1796 Corsica was conquered by the French again and Paoli left for England. In june 1797 Elisa went with her mother to Corsica for the restauration of the plundered family-house in Corte and in autumn 1797 Félix Bacciochi went with Lucien Bonaparte to Spain.
