Indeed. The one saving grace for Charles, of course, is that Napoleon is all the way up in Berlin while he's still plotting ways to attack Passau (and as May arrives, looping through Klatovy to strike through Cham could be an option, though that brings him dangerously close to the French up north). Fighting a multi-theater war is not going to be feasible much longer.Nearby Passau:
Envoy: Sir, dire news! The Poles have defeated Schwarzenberg, and forced him into a retreat.
Archduke Charles: Well, that isn't exactly good news, but at least his army is intact...
Envoy: Further, most of the Prussian army has been destroyed at Leipzig, and King Fridrich has been captured.
Archduke Charles (as recorded by historians): It seems that the spirit of Friedrich II. is truly dead.
Archduke Charles (in reality): ..... "curses entirely inapropriate for a Habsburg prince"
More seriously, quite the good job. Makes sense that the allied armies would attack from further West, instead of the more successfull OTL approach taken by the Austrians. And the additional years were clearly well used by Poniatowski (Davout must be quite happy). I have the strangest feeling, that the house of Brandenburg is not geting another miracle, and Prussias partition is going to be... very much not pretty. Now, Austria is the last continental powert against Napoleon, and while the Archduke will likely have had much more time and success in his reforms, he has to face the full might of a very angry Napoleon. Will be interesting to see how it ends.
Interesing fact, Schwarzenberg and Poniatowski were good friends, having known each other from the latters time in Austrian services against the Ottomans. They kept up correspondence, and Schwarzenberg expressed his deep sadness after Poniatowski's death.
That is pretty interesting! I did not know that. In that case, I'd have to imagine that after the war Schwarzenberg and Poniatowski regard their clash at Czechostowa as a gentlemanly bout between friends in which one proved his mettle and intelligence as a man and warrior, rather than anything that could produce a feud.
