Without accounting for conflicts occurring in colonial areas (as they do not exist in this timeline) here is a brief primer of events happening in the Napoleonic wars. No major battles are included, as this is a summary. Pre-1811 - Establishment of Napoleonic France: Napoléon Bonaparte, "Emperor of France" seized power military dictatorship in France in 1799 effectively ending the widespread French Revolution through out the country. The last of the French Revolutionary Wars (direct war from major monarchal powers like Britain, Austria, Russia against the Revolutionary basis of new government in attempts to reestablish the French monarchy) wrapped up in March 1802. After a brief peace until 1803, allied monarchal powers under Britain went heavily to war with Napoleon, who established the powerful land Grande Armée, a huge pan-European fighting force. However, Britain retained- through grit, industry, and much sacrifice- naval superiority. Many battles were fought, with Napoleon's forces eventually taking the vast majority of continental Europe by 1810, aside from Portugal. A continuing war on the Iberian penninsula is underway from 1809-onward. Spain has been overthrown and it's monarchy replaced by rule of Napoleon's brother Joseph. War has continued, essentially unstopped on small scales, from 1803 on. 1811 Onward - "Recent Events": Napoleonic France and its allies continue to threaten the existence of Britain with constant clashes of Army on European lands with and Navy battles at sea. Trade with continental Europe is all but stopped with Britain due to naval embargos imposed by both sides, though Britain maintains a large fleet in the Iberian Peninsula, in home waters, and protecting trade routes in the Mediterranean. Portugal and Spain peoples have established the "first" widespread use of civilian and military guerilla tactics against the French army. Approximately 1.5 million so far have died in the Napoleonic Wars, either through military battle or through French killing of civilian opposition. Russia remains unconquered, and an ally to Britain.
