After the marriage of Josephine and Napoleon, Eugène was adopted by Napoleon (but was not considered heir to the throne). He served in various military and political capacities for Napoleon, including command of the Army of Italy. After the fall of Napoleon, he lived in Munich, where his father-in-law made him Duke of Leuchtenberg. He was married to the Princess Augusta Amalia Ludovika George of Bavaria.
