When his cousin Napoleon Charles had died (1839-1899; mem. #41746305), he became the sixth (and last) Prince of Canino and Musignano, but he never assumed this title.
He entered the French Army, but was excluded in 1886, when all members of the former French Royal and Imperial families had to leave France.
Since then he devoted himself exclusively to Geography and scientific exploration, and botany. He took part in an expedition that measured (and photographed) the Sami, inhabitants of a region in Northern Norway (on the illustration opposite he is wearing Sami clothing) and did also research in Lapland and in the Dutch colonies: the Dutch Indies, including New Guinea, and Surinam.
His main publications are: Les habitants de Suriname; notes receuillies à l'exposition coloniale d'Amsterdam en 1883 (1884); Les premiers voyages des Néerlandais dans l'Insulinde (1884); Les voyages des Néerlandais à la Nouvelle-Guinée (1885); Notes on the Lapps of Finmark (1886); Le fleuve Augusta (1887); Les Derniers voyages des Néerlandais à la Nouvelle-Guinée (1885); Le Premier établissement des Néerlandais à Maurice (1890); Une Excursion en Corse (Paris, 1891); Le Prince Bonaparte,... Notes ptéridologiques (1915-1924).
In 1910 he was appointed (for life) President of the Geographical Society (Société de Géographie).
