history meme | one war

The Napoleonic Wars (1803 - 1815) were a series of wars against the French Empire as lead by Napoleon Bonaparte. A postscript of sorts to the French Revolution, French armies were doing wonderfully until they decided to invade Russia in 1812, which, if you’ve studied history to any extent, you know that you do not do. France was then beaten at Leipzig and Waterloo. The end of the war brough upon the dissolution of the not-Holy, not-Roman, not-empirical Holy Roman Empire, and the subsequent rise to power of the British Empire. The war formally ended with the Second Treaty of Paris. The war has been romanticised and novelised in the likes of War and Peace, Les Miserables, and Vanity Fair. (more)
