Celebrated Crimes, Vol. 7: Part 3: Murat

Alexandre DUMAS (1802 - 1870), translated by George Burnham IVES (1856 - 1930)

Amidst the political winds from Napoleon’s downfall, this tale turns our attention to the flight of a former French marshal and King of Naples, Joachim Murat. Murat, unhappy with the deal he made to obtain pardon from the Austrian Emperor, takes a life-ending resolution to retake his crown rather than live in peaceful obscurity. - Summary by jvanstan
