Prince Murat (until 1828)
Died aged c. 46
Prince Napoleon Achille Murat, the Crown Prince of Naples, was born in 1801. In physical appearance, he resembled his uncle, Napoleon Bonaparte. Murat came to St. Augustine in the spring of 1824, and quickly became woven into the social fabric of the community. He joined the Masonic lodge, became a bondsman of the city treasurer and dabbled in local politics. While living in New Orleans and Tallahassee, Murat studied and wrote about the law and government, publishing A Moral and Political Sketch of the United States of North America in 1832 and other works. After unsuccessfully pursuing the Bonaparte inheritance in Europe in the late 1830s, Murat and his wife Catherine, retired to their Tallahassee plantation. There, he died April 15, 1847 at the age of 46.
