War and Revolution
In about 1810, Napoleon Bonaparte, emperor of the French, appeared to have the affairs of Europe firmly under his control. Central and southern Europe, except for that area in Spain where guerrilla activity persisted, were in his hands; Russia, at the other end of the Continent, had been forced to come to terms; only England remained inaccessible behind its navy. Bonaparte the Corsican soldier had taken the daughter of the greatest house in Europe, the Archduchess Marie Louise of Austria, to be his empress.
