Origin[edit | edit source]

Joséphine de Beauharnais and Napoleon Bonaparte had one of the most famous romances in history. While both lovers had affairs on the side, it has been well documented that they were deeply in love. Despite this, Napoleon needed an heir to the French Empire, which Josephine couldn't give him due to an accident she suffered. Although it pained him greatly to do it, he told her his plans for divorce. Her screams could be heard across the palace. In a heartfelt ceremony, they divorced and read statements of affection. While Napoleon still truly loved her, he needed to think of the good of France. Josephine tearfully agreed. It has been rumored that with their last breaths they each said their lover's name.

Effects[edit | edit source]

The ring felt Josephine's anguish when Napoleon divorced her, and was imbued with the desire to protect the love for which it stood for. It has been theorized that the ring became an artifact after it was removed during the divorce ceremony.

When the ring senses heartbreak from the wearer it will do anything to remove that which it considers a threat to the user's relationship. This could be anything from an object, a building, or a person. While the object of the user's affection is safe from harm, the "other woman" is not.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Collected by H.G. Wells. It is kept in the Valentine Aisle, but it kept pulling towards Napoleon Bonaparte's Violin after it was collected by Artie. The violin and the ring were united, producing a calming effect. Now the violin emits pleasant love songs, giving the Valentine Aisle a rosy atmosphere.
