  • Notes 
    • Corsican politician and diplomat in Russian service, b. Corsica. In the French Revolution, he allied with Pasquale Paoli against the Jacobins on Corsica and supported the British occupation of the island in 1794. He became head of the British-backed civil government, superseding Paoli. After the French reconquest of Corsica (1796), Pozzo di Borgo left the island. He entered the Russian diplomatic service in 1804. An irreconcilable enemy of the Bonapartes (largely because of the role they had played in Corsican events), he helped to promote the Russo-Austrian alliance of 1805 against Napoleon I. The treaty of Tilsit (1807) between Czar Alexander I and Napoleon (1807) caused him to retire from the Russian service. Alexander recalled him in 1812, when hostilities with France reopened. In 1814, after Napoleon's first abdication, he was appointed Russian ambassador in Paris. Strongly sympathetic to the restored Bourbon regime, he strove to lighten the burdens laid on it by the allies. His pro-French attitude eventually caused his transfer to London, where he served (1835-39) as ambassador.

      Charles André, cousin au 5ème degré des frères et soeurs BONAPARTE, fut l'ami de jeunesse de Napoléon, avant de devenir son ennemi acharné. Le début de leur rupture s'expliquant sans doute dans le cadre de l'évolution de la situation politique corse en décembre 1792 : Election de Charles André POZZO DI BORGO au Directoire, entièrement paoliste, du département de la Corse, pour des raisons provenants, a priori,"moins de divergences idéologiques que de l'ambition qui les portait simultanément à s'affirmer dans le petit cadre (si étroit) de la Corse".
      Charles André a écrit des Mémoires (manuscrits conservés dans les archives de la Famille POZZO DI BORGO). qui couvrent la période allant de sa naissance en 1764 jusqu'en 1796, qui se présentent en plusieurs versions : la première, inachevée, fut écrite avant 1804, la dernière en 1838.
      Napoléon avait participé à la lamentable et humiliante expédition militaire de Sardaigne, qui selon Charles André, acheva de ruiner les relations de Napoléon BONAPARTE avec Pasquale PAOLI (1725-1807)
    • Excluded from the general pardon in oct 1796 [1]
