  • Notes 
    • Pr français (Imperial Highness) 24 Sep 1806, King of Westphalia 8 Jul 1807-26 Oct 1813 (König "Lustig" von Westfalen-Hofhaltung in Kassel), cr Pr von Montfort by the King of Württemberg 31 Jul 1816, confirmed as Pr français 23 Dec 1852

      lieutenant in the French Navy in 1803, fighting in the Carribbean.
      To avoid capture by the British he was forced to land in the US: he arrived in New York, and then went to Baltimore to meet an American whom he befriended in the French Navy. There, he met Elizabeth Patterson (1785-1879), daughter of William, Irish immigrant, gun-runner during the Revolution and by then the wealthiest man in Maryland after Charles Carroll of Carrolton. They met at a party, fell in love, and within 2 months got married (he was 19, she was 18). The marriage took place on Christmas Eve 1803, in the Baltimore Cathedral, with the archbishop of Baltimore performing the ceremony.
      Jerome's brother Napoleon (not yet emperor) was furious: he intended to marry off his family according to his political designs. He had the marriage annulled by the French courts, ordered his brother back without "the young person". Jerome went back, with Betsy: she was denied landing in continental Europe and had to go to London, where she gave birth to a son in 1805. Jerome gave in to his brother, returned to the French Navy and forgot about Betsy.
