Dr TW Evans, American dentist and biographer of Napoleon III, 19th century

Dr TW Evans, American dentist and biographer of Napoleon III, 19th century. Thomas Wiltberger Evans first treated Louis-Napoleon, the future Emperor Napoleon III, but then President of the french Second Republic, in 1850. He became the Emperor's official dentist and was the first American to be admitted to the Legion d'Honneur. In 1870 after the defeat of Napoleon's army at Sedan and the ensuing overthrow of the Second Empire, Evans was instrumental in ensuring the escape of the Empress Eugenie to exile in England. He wrote an account of Napoleon's reign in his Memoirs of Dr Thomas W Evans: the Second French Empire.

Claridges Hotel, Mayfair, Westminster, London, c1877 (1878)

Claridge's Hotel, Mayfair, Westminster, London, c1877 (1878). Claridge's was founded in 1812 as Mivart's Hotel but was renamed after the hotel was sold to a Mr and Mrs Claridge in 1854. In 1860 Empress Eugenie made an extended visit and entertained Queen Victoria at the hotel. Richard D'Oyly Carte, founder of the rival Savoy Hotel, purchased Claridge's in 1894 and demolished the building, replacing it with the hotel that stands today, which opened in 1898. During the Second World War it was the base of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia's forces in exile and home of King Peter II of Yugoslavia. From Old and New London Illustrated, Vol IV, by Edward Walford. [Cassell Petter & Galpin, London, Paris & New York, 1878]
