Second Empire houses get their name from the Second Empire period in France (1852-1870) during the reign of Napolean III. The most easily identifiable feature was the use of mansard roofs to envelope the top floors in the roof line. It is a Victorian era style, and Second Empire features were applied to plans that might otherwise be described as Italianate or Stick or even Queen Anne.
