Dang I didn’t think Napoleon II would live long enough to see that, but I guess he found the secret to immortality after all.
I doubt this would have actually erupted into war. By the time Napoleon intended to make his move, negotiations for peace had already begun.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.
Why be ruler of two relatively impoverished islands as opposed to France itself? Napoleon would probably never accept such a deal and neither would she coalition. As soon as Napoleon arrives and takes over, the former allies probably call a truce and move against Napoleon.Napoleon rallies the armies and makes france defect to the russian side. considering that still no one wants his as emperor of france he make an agreement where he can keep his title over Elba but also gains control over Sardinia and Corsica with Bastia as new capital.
I mean in an alternate tl where Eugene keeps the Italian title, you could potentially see him gift it to Napoleon II in exchange for him marrying his daughter or something.After his death His son would carry he's legacy by uniting italy( after all the bonaparte have italian origins...)
This is not how a Napoleon Dies at Leipzig timeline would go, but I suppose that's your point.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.
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.
Edit: The Spoiler was removed if you want to know it at your own risk you can know it in the original link.

Wait.....what?This is not how a Napoleon Dies at Leipzig timeline would go, but I suppose that's your point.
The final/current product is quite a bit better.Wait.....what?
I mean its an old idea I was thinking of from well over a year ago, so obviously a lot of things have changed. That map was more of a proof of concept than anything else when I first started learning how to make maps.
Ok, you must to write other phrase that other historical character said in this alternate world. Then, other person has that explain it and write a new phrase.He came to power years after the death of his father, but in a triumphant way and lead France to glory.
That, or sex.
I like the quote in the prologue that Napoleon uses to describe Napoleon much better.It's like AHC: Explain the Quote
I mean this: https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/explain-the-ah-quote.409146/I like the quote in the prologue that Napoleon uses to describe Napoleon much better.
Dear God No!Title of his sex tape
That’s actually really cool. I have some fun quotes in mind for this TL that I’ll eventually post there.I mean this: https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/explain-the-ah-quote.409146/
It's a game where one say a phrase, other explain it and say other phrase that other also explain it.
Well he died in 1824 from a brain aneurism I think. Napoleon's eventual rise to power is somewhere around 1830, so unfortunately no on that front. Though other prominent figures from the Empire who didn't die from the Hundred Days would still be around.just wondering, will Eugene de Beauharnais help Napoleon II?
