On 4 October 1833 he married Maria Anna Cecchi in Florence, the daughter of a Florentine sculptor. The couple separated in 1850. After Maria Anna's death on 17 March 1891, Louis Lucien married Clémence Richard in London, with whom he already had a son, Louis Clovis Bonaparte (1859–1894).
Louis Lucien died at Fano, Italy. Clémence Richard died in 1915.
A philologist and politician, he spent his youth in Italy and did not go to France until 1848, when he served two brief terms in the Assembly as representative for Corsica (1848) and for the Seine départements (1849) before moving to London, where he spent most of the remainder of his life. His classification of dialects of the Basque language is still used. He also denounced William Pryce for having plagiarized the research of Edward Lhuyd into Cornish and other Celtic languages.
