Beheaded Woman Statue: Joséphine Beheaded

Just as Victor Schoelcher is adored in the Caribbean, Empress Joséphine de Beauharnais, Napoleon's wife, is detested!

Her statue, located in the Savane Park of Fort de France, was beheaded a few years ago...

It must be said that her role in the reinstatement of the slave trade in 1802 was not really appreciated here!
