“With our most august and dear husband’s permission, I must declare that no longer holding out any hope for a child that could satisfy both his political needs and the good of France, I give to him the greatest proof of attachment and devotion…”
Gone are the days of the fiery love, when you went to bed with your heart full of my adored image, when you awoke full of me. Oh, what passionate words you used to write to me, the empress of your heart. I curse my barren womb that now forces me to abdicate to you, to watch another take my place by your side, while I must smile and pretend courtesies, while my heart wants to tear it all apart. I wrote it down, you have my words… my empty words.
This was my somewhat anachronistic Joséphine Bonaparte, as she wrote her letter of marriage dissolution to Napoléon. She’s wearing the latest design by Silvan Moon. Silvan Moon is a new line, created by two of my favorite stores: the gorgeous original mesh by BlueMoon Enterprises and the stunning textures by The White Armory. I’m very excited about this new line!
The jewelry that my heart-broken empress is wearing is a new creation by Zuri Jewelry, and I’m showing it to you only as a teaser! You can find it soon at the main store, and also in different colors at the July round of Swank.
“Nevertheless, the dissolution of my marriage will change nothing of the feelings in my heart: the Emperor will have in me always his greatest friend.”
Joséphine, 15 December 1809
