An excerpt from the article 32 facts about Napoleon Bonaparte

Napoleon always respected his mother, treating her with typical Corsican reverence. His attitude toward his siblings, however, was different. He treated them roughly and authoritatively. After his father's death, it was he, and not his eldest brother Joseph, who took over the function of caring for the family. He took care of his brother Ludwig, who lived with him in various barracks, and taught him everything. Napoleon also had a special affection for one of his sisters - Pauline Bonaparte, to whom he related with great love.
