Bernadotte, Jean Baptiste Jules, Prince of Pontecorvo (1763-1844)

Marshal Bernadotte, Prince of Pontecorvo (1763-1844)

Jean Baptiste Jules Bernadotte was a French military leader and Marshal of France.

French by birth, Bernadotte served a long career in the French Army. He was appointed as a Marshal of France by Napoleon I, though the two had a turbulent relationship. His service to France ended in 1810, when he was elected the heir to the Swedish throne because the old Swedish royal family was dying out with King Charles XIII. Baron Carl Otto Mörner, who was a Swedish courtier, and obscure member of the Diet, advocated for the succession.
