Hidden hand Napoleon I (1769-1821) . Freemason and Emperor of France, 1805-14.  Napoleon's four brothers - Joseph, Lucian, Louis, and Jerome, as well as his stepson, Eugene Beauharnais, his brother-in-law Murat, and nephew, Jerome, were all Freemason's. Most of them held high Masonic rank.  Those who were chosen by Napoleon for high honor and office in the state were usually Freemason's. Of the six, who, with the emperor himself, formed the Grand Council of the Empire, five were certainly Freemasons, including Arch Chancellor Prince Jean Jacques Regis Cambaceres, an enthusiastic and active Mason. Of the nine lesser imperial officers of state, six at least were active Masons. Of the marshals of France who served under Napoleon, at least 22 of the first 30 were Freemasons.  [source]
