          In The Mad Monarchist, the Consort Profile of Empress Eugenie of France mentioned:     
   
          She (Eugenie) also took it upon herself to act as a defender of the Catholic Church around       
          the world when other countries would not. It is no exaggeration to say that virtually every decision made by Napoleon III 
          that benefited the (Catholic) Church and Catholic society was done on her advice.

That explains the French troops protecting the Pope before the 1870 collapse of the Papal States.

                            Empress Eugenie first met Prince Louis Napoleon after he had become president of the     
                            Second Republic, with her mother, at a reception given by the Prince-President at     
                            the Elysee Palace on April 12, 1849.
