Napoleonic Wars, series of wars between NapoleonicFrance and shifting alliances of other European powers that produced a brief French hegemony over most of Europe. Along with the French Revolutionary wars, the Napoleonic Wars constitute a 23-year period of recurrent conflict that concluded only with the Battle of Waterloo and Napoleon’s second abdication on June 22, 1815.

What were the Napoleonic Wars?

The Napoleonic Wars were a series of conflicts between Napoleon's France and a shifting web of alliances. The wars lasted 15 years, and for a brief time Napoleon was the master of Europe.

Cause Of The Napoleonic Wars

When did the Napoleonic Wars take place?

The Napoleonic Wars (1800–15) were a continuation of the French Revolutionary Wars (1792–99), and together they represented 23 years of nearly uninterrupted conflict in Europe.

Why were the Napoleonic Wars important?

The pressures of the war likely prompted Napoleon to sell the Louisiana Territory to the United States. The Congress of Vienna, the postwar settlement, remade the map of Europe and set the stage for the emergence of Germany and Italy as unified states.

What did the Napoleonic Wars have to do with the Era of Good Feelings?

The end of the Napoleonic Wars prompted a disengagement from European affairs by the United States. The 'good feelings' were created by isolationism, a lull in sectional tension, and political calm generated by the collapse of the Federalist Party.

How did the Napoleonic Wars end?

After the Allies entered Paris in March 1814, Napoleon abdicated and was exiled to the island of Elba. He returned to France in March 1815, rebuilt his army, and was finally defeated by Allied forces under the duke of Wellington and Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher at Waterloo on June 18, 1815.

When the coup of 18–19 Brumaire (November 9–10, 1799) brought Napoleon Bonaparte to power, the Second Coalition against France was beginning to break up. In Holland a capitulation had been signed for the withdrawal of the Anglo-Russian expeditionary force. Although the Russo-Austrian forces in Italy had won a series of victories, the course of the campaign in Switzerland had reflected growing differences between Austria and Russia. Despite Russia’s subsequent abandonment of the common cause and France’s recovery of control over Holland and Switzerland, the British government paid no serious attention to Bonaparte’s proposals for peace in December 1799. On the one hand the regime in France had yet to prove itself and on the other it was expected that the Austrians would make further gains.

The defeat of Austria, 1800–01

Though Bonaparte had to embark on the campaigns of 1800 with inadequate forces and funds, the weaknesses of allied strategy went far to offset the disadvantages under which he laboured. Austria had decided on an equal division of its strength by maintaining armies of approximately 100,000 men in both the German and Italian theatres. Instead of reinforcing Austrian strength in northern Italy, where there was most hope of success, the British government spent its efforts in limited and isolated enterprises, among them an expedition of 6,000 men to capture Belle-Île off the Brittany coast and another of 5,000 to join the 6,000 already on the Balearic Island of Minorca. When in June these two forces were diverted to cooperate with the Austrians they arrived off the Italian coast too late to be of use.

Bonaparte’s plan was to treat Italy as a secondary theatre and to seek a decisive victory in Germany. It proved impossible to increase Victor Moreau’s Army of the Rhine to more than 120,000—too small a margin of superiority to guarantee the success required. Nevertheless, Bonaparte was busy with the creation of an army of reserve which was to be concentrated around Dijon and was destined to act under his command in Italy. Until he had engaged this force in the south, Bonaparte would be able, should the need arise, to take it to Moreau’s assistance. In Italy André Masséna’s 30,000–40,000 outnumbered troops were to face the Austrians in the Apennines and in the Maritime Alps until the army of reserve, marching to the south of the Army of the Rhine, should cross the Alps, fall upon the Austrians’ lines of communication, cut off their retreat from Piedmont, and bring them to battle. Bonaparte had hoped that Moreau would mass the Army of the Rhine in Switzerland and cross the river at Schaffhausen to turn the Austrian left in strength and obtain a decisive victory before dispatching some of his army to join the force descending on the rear of the Austrians in Italy. Moreau, however, preferred to cross the Rhine at intervals over a distance of 60 miles (approximately 100 km) and to encounter the Austrians before concentrating his own forces.
