Bonaparte, Louis Lucien (1813–1891), philologist, was born at Thorngrove, a house in the parish of Grimley, Worcestershire, on 4 January 1813, the sixth child of Lucien Bonaparte, prince of Canino (1775–1840), who was the second surviving brother of the emperor Napoléon I, and his second wife, Alexandrine Jouberthon, née Alexandrine de Bleschamps (1778–1855). On the death of his first wife in March 1891, on 15 June 1891 Bonaparte married Clémence Richard (1830–1915), with whom he had been living for many years. Their only son, known variously as Louis Clavering Clovis Richard and Louis Clavering Clovis, had been born in 1859. On his parents' marriage he was legitimatized by his father and was known as Louis Clovis Bonaparte. By that time, however, Louis Lucien's health was failing and on 3 November 1891 he died from heart failure while staying with his niece at Fano, Italy, whence his body was brought back to London.

Lucien was buried in St Mary's Roman Catholic cemetery at Kensal Green, north-west London.. His son, who adopted the title of prince after his father's death, being known as Prince Louis Clovis Bonaparte, died on 14 May 1894.
