EMPRESS JOSEPHINE

Classification: Query
My ancestor (born in 1802) was a lady in waiting, member of the Royal House of Holland, and cousin to the queen. She fled to America to avoid marrying a German prince.

Empress Josephine's daughter, Hortense, was briefly the queen of Holland at that time, so I'm wondering if it was possible that it could have been her.
My ancestor even gave her son a French name, Lafayette.
Also, Napoleon arranged a marriage for a member of his family to a German prince, and forced them to marry. This sounds similar to my ancestor's situation... I was wondering if it was even possible to find a cousin of Hortense's.
Any theories, ideas, information about the Bonapartes, info about Hortense, or info about Joshephine, would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks!
