Biographical notes:

Joseph Bonaparte, king of Naples and Sicily (1806-1808), and king of Spain (1808-1813), the eldest surviving son of Charles and Marie Bonaparte, was the brother of Napoleon. He served Napoleon on diplomatic missions and was a humane sovereign in southern Italy but faced continious rebellion as a nominated ruler in Spain where his army was decisively defeated by Wellington at Vitoria (June 1813). He spent much of his life in exile in New Jersey but settled in Florence for the last years of his life. [Cambridge Dictionary of Biography]
