English: Marie Paulette (Pauline) Bonaparte, Princesse Française, Princess and Duchess of Guastalla (October 20, 1780- June 9, 1825) was the younger and favourite sister of Napoleon I of France. She caused a scandal because during her marriage, she posed for a partially nude sculpture as Venus Victrix by Antonio Canova which now resides at the Galleria Borghese.
