La San Felice is a late work by Alexandre Dumas published in 186, Teresa, 5. It reports on the enthusiasm of the people of Naples at the arrival of the French army, the creation of the Neapolitan republic, then the terrible repression and massacres which followed the monarchical restoration. In April 1861, Alexandre Dumas discovered the archives of the Neapolitan monarchy and he planned to create “a work which would not be without importance for the Cause". From these archives several works will be published. First, a history of the monarchy of Naples: Storia di Borboni di Napoli, published from May 1862 to February 1864 as a supplement to L'Indipendente, and partially translated into French under the title Les Bourbons de Naples, this manuscript being part of it. Essentially composed of documents, this text traces the history of the monarchy, specifying certain events and in particular the ephemeral Neapolitan Republic. The writer takes up a project already mentioned ten years earlier, that of the life of Lady Hamilton and, in particular, her role with the Queen of Naples, Marie-Caroline, and Nelson during the events of 1798- 1799.
