General Malet, a discontent republican general that opposed Napoleon becoming an Emperor, and under arrest between 1810 and 1812, planned a Valkyrie-like operation against Napoleon on October of 1812, following the disaster that was the Russian Campaign. This is of course had to pull off, since in this case Napoleon is still out there, fighting the Sixth Coalition. Two ideas come to me: 1. What if Malet's plot had advanced somewhat more? How far can they go before Napoleon makes it back or is confirmed as alive? 2. What if Napoleon had in fact been assassinated or killed on October of 1812? There were no Malet conspirators within the ranks of the Grandee Armee, but what if there were? or what if by an unbelievable coincidence, Napoleon had died or been incapacitated amidst the Malet Plot?
