And what about Constantine as a “strategic factor”? In OTL Alexander made some, rather formal, moves against Austria but Constantine is much more pro-Napoleonic and much less pro- everybody else so shouldn’t he be more energetic? After all, he is not a dedicated pacifist and a little victorious war is good for the nation’s morale. But if he is “in”, the Austrians are in a pretty much hopeless strategic situation unless they manage to score a decisive victory over Napoleon.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.
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.
