Maria Paola Buonaparte, the sixth child of Letizia Ramolino and Carlo Buonaparte, Corsica's representative to the court of King Louis XVI of France, was born on 20 October 1780 in Ajaccio, Corsica.[2] She was popularly known as "Paoletta", and her family soon took a French spelling of their surname, Bonaparte. Little is known about her childhood, bar the fact that she received no formal education.[3] Following Carlo's death in 1785, the family were plunged into poverty.[3]

Her brother Lucien Bonaparte made seditious comments at the local Jacobin chapter in the summer of 1793, forcing the family to flee to the mainland for their lives. It was there on the mainland that she became known as "Paulette". The earnings the Bonapartes heretofore extracted from their vineyards and other holdings on Corsica were interrupted by the English occupation.[4] Their existence became so dire that, according to hyperbole, the Bonaparte women resorted to washing clothes for payment.[5] Regardless, they received, like other Corsican refugees following the English invasion, a stipend from the government. From their landing place, Toulon, they moved to Marseille, where General Napoleon Bonaparte, her elder brother, introduced her to Louis-Marie Stanislas Fréron, the proconsul of Marseille.[6] He intended them to marry, but Letizia objected;[4] in his stead, Napoleon, despite that fact that she loved Stanislas, married Pauline to General Charles Leclerc in French-occupied Milan on 14 June 1797.[7] Napoleon returned to Paris and delegated the office of commander-in-chief of the French army in Italy to his brother-in-law.[8] Pauline was soon with child. She gave birth to a boy, Dermide Louis Napoleon, on 20 April 1798.[9] In celebration, General Leclerc acquired a property outside
