Jérôme Napoléon Bonaparte (London, 5 July 1805 – Baltimore, 17 June 1870) was a son of Elizabeth Patterson and Jérôme Bonaparte, brother of Napoleon I.

He was born in 95 Camberwell Grove, Camberwell, London, England, but lived in the United States with his wealthy American mother. Jérôme's mother's marriage had been annulled by order of Jérôme's uncle, French Emperor Napoleon I. The annulment caused the rescission of his right to carry the Bonaparte name; though the ruling was later reversed by his cousin, Napoleon III.

It is speculated that Jérôme's prospective title is a reason the 11th Congress of the United States in 1810 proposed the Titles of Nobility Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would strip an American of his citizenship if he accepted a title of nobility from a foreign nation. The amendment has never been approved, lacking the approval of only two state legislatures at that time.

He married Susan May Williams, and it is from them that the American line of the Bonaparte family descended. They had two sons:

He graduated from Mount St. Mary's College (now Mount St. Mary's University) in 1817.

Jérôme Napoleon Bonaparte died in Baltimore, Maryland and is buried in the Loudon Park Cemetery, Baltimore.

    BONAPARTE, Jerome Napoleon, was born at Camberwell, England, July 7, 1805; son of Jerome and Elizabeth (Patterson) Bonaparte. He was graduated at Harvard college in 1826, and studied law, but never engaged in its practice. His legitimacy was acknowledged by Louis Napoleon, but he preferred a residence in America, where he was married to Susan May Williams, of Baltimore, in opposition to the wishes of his mother, who had selected for his wife a daughter of Joseph Bonaparte. By his marriage and his inheritance from his mother he acquired one of the largest estates in Maryland. He died in Baltimore, Md., June 17, 1870.
