Naples - Gioacchino Murat (King Joachim Murat) (1 August 1808 - 19 May 1815)

Joachim-Napoléon Murat (born Joachim Murat; Italian: Gioacchino Napoleone Murat; German: Joachim-Napoleon Murat) was a Marshal of France and Admiral of France under the reign of Napoleon. He was also the 1st Prince Murat, Grand Duke of Berg from 1806 to 1808, and King of Naples from 1808 to 1815. Murat received his titles in part by being Napoleon's brother-in-law through marriage to his younger sister, Caroline Bonaparte, as well as personal merit. He was noted as a daring, brave, and charismatic cavalry officer as well as a flamboyant dresser, for which he was known as "the Dandy King".
