Napoleon II received another rejection when his grandfather refused to allow him to be part of the army traveling to Italy to put down a rebellion.
In 1831, Napoleon II was given command of an Austrian battalion, but he never got the chance to serve in any meaningful capacity. In 1832, he caught pneumonia and was bedridden for several months. His poor health eventually overtook him and on July 22, 1832, Napoleon II died of tuberculosis at Schonbrunn Palace in Vienna, Austria. In 1940, as a gift to France from Adolf Hitler, Napoleon II's remains were transferred from Vienna to the dome of Les Invalides in Paris, France, where he now rests beside his father.
