    • He was the genuinely Revolutionary Bonaparte, and his relations with his brother Napoleon were often abrasive.  An ally of Maximilien Robespierre during the Reign of Terror, he was briefly imprisoned (at Aix-en-Provence) after the coup of 9 Thermidor.
          With the pope a prisoner of Napoleon in 1809, Lucien was sailing for the United States, when he was captured instead by the British and passed the years 1810 to 1814 as a prisoner of the British, settled comfortably in the English countryside, and working on a heroic poem on the subject of Charlemagne. He was even omitted from the Imperial almanachs listing the Bonapartes from 1811.
          Then, in the "Hundred Days" after Napoleon's return from exile at Elba, Lucien rallied to the imperial cause. Though he was proscribed at the Restoration and deprived of his fauteuil at the Acad?mie Francaise, under Louis-Philippe Lucien Bonaparte was made a peer of France. He died in Viterbo, Italy, on June 29, 1840.
