Yeah that's the one. Its an old map I made several months ago. I posted it here on AH as well.
I'm currently doing some research for the next chapter as that touches on Spain and the later Latin American Revolutions.
After some time of research I for my part found the end of the chronology. ⊙_⊙
No it's French too. It's where the Bourbons established a government in exile.
Hahaha! Take that Perfidious Albion! Its Big Blue Blob's time to shine!After some time of research I for my part found the end of the chronology. ⊙_⊙
Vive L'Empire Francais! Vive la France!Le monde est bleu comme toi...
Everything changed when the [Antarctica stands alone against the French
I feel like its more the British. If anything I feel like the King and Parliament have spread to the last place France hasn't conquered.No it's French too. It's where the Bourbons established a government in exile.
The Royal Emperor Penguins are definitely a force to be reckoned with.Ah yes, the famous, or infamous, Bourbon royal army of penguins, known for their loyalty and skill, Napoleonic France barley survived their onslaught even with the entire world's resources at their beck and call, what savage creatures.
Hi @Niegel, I’m glad you’re pretty hyped this tl.What follows below is a possible long-term sketch of the TL, so I'm spoiling it in case you don't want to know what it might look like.
Already didHey @Niegel I’m glad you’re pretty hyped this tl.
Do you mind taking down that part post listed as spoilers? I mean while I haven’t really decided on some things like how exactly certain revolutions play out, some stuff are pretty huge spoilers. I don’t really want to ruin it for the other readers.
Alright thanks man.Already did
I dunno. My day was ruined a couple of times with certain anime/shows I was watching being spoiled. A friend accidentally spoiled some of the end points of the demon slayer manga which kind of sucked. Good thing is that I had no context for spoilers so it wasn’t that bad.Well, this will be great. All I have to say is that in the end, the end doesn't matter so much as the journey.
Was talking about the TL as a whole when talking about the end not mattering, only the journey.I dunno. My day was ruined a couple of times with certain anime/shows I was watching being spoiled. A friend accidentally spoiled some of the end points of the demon slayer manga which kind of sucked. Good thing is that I had no context for spoilers so it wasn’t that bad.
Yeah of course. I’d be a pretty crappy Basileus if I didn’t lol.
Well, once i though about a tl with Napoleon II going to Elba with his father. Napoleon does the 100 days but only after the crisis of saxony and poland ignites in full war between prussia and russia again britain france and austria.Guys, I made another unexpected discovery on Reddit ⊙_⊙
Its basically where Napoleon dies at Leipzig, and as a result there's no Hundred Days Campaign. Napoleon had managed to gain the upper hand in the battle and rode out to boost morale among his troops when he was hit by enemy fire. As a result of his death, the Army lost coalition and France's Empire came apart at the seams. A few loyalists tried crown Napoleon II as the new Emperor, but once the Coalition forces marched on Paris, Marie-Louise fled with her son to the Austrian Court. The Bourbons were restored with France keeping its pre-Revolution borders. France is in a much stronger position without the Hundred Days with the resources of the bits of the Rhineland it had, and the lack of a War Indemnity levied upon it after Napoleon's Hundred Days Campaign of OTL.
Napoleon II basically grows up in the Austrian Court but is fond of his father's legacy and resolves to have a career in the army. He also takes a deep interest in his education and tries to learn military strategy from whatever books he can. Napoleon grows bitter from the gilded cage that Austria has trapped him in, and develops a personal resentment towards Metternich. Napoleon manages to earn his grandfather's sympathy, and gains command of a battalion in Tyrol. The revolts against King Charles X of France occur like in otl but this time its a full blown Revolution. Though Bonapartist support among the old Napoleonic veterans and some segments of the French population is high after Napoleon's death in battle rather than him being defeated, and placed in exile. The Revolution of 1830 causes both the Bourbons and the Orleans family to flee. The liberals and moderates now have no one to rally to, and a self proclaimed Second Republic is declared in Paris. Though not everyone supports this as it brings back memories of the chaos and anarchy of the First Republic. Napoleon II arrives in France and the army defects to him en masse. He presents himself as a candidate restoring order in France. Napoleon then marches on Paris which is held by the unpopular Second Republic and easily takes the city. The Austrians reluctantly back him as he's Emperor Francis's Grandson. Napoleon then declares that he wishes to uphold the peace in Europe in order to assuage the fears of the rest of Europe.
