In 1813, following his disastrous invasion of Russia, Napoleon faced a desperate battle to save his empire. His enemies were gaining in strength, as Prussia and Sweden joined the Sixth Coalition against him, while Russian armies advanced across Poland and into Germany. The French Emperor worked miracles to raise a new Grande Armée of young conscripts, leading them to victory at Lützen and Bautzen. But Napoleon knew everything might ultimately depend on Austria – which side would his father-in-law, Austrian Emperor Francis I, chose to support? The matter would be settled after a fateful and ill-tempered meeting in Dresden between Napoleon and Austrian foreign minister von Metternich…

  • Napoleon's defeat was utterly undeserved. Every time that he lost it was because of exceptionally negative circumstances. All of the pile-on squads of enemies that defeated him were (with the exception of Kutuzov) total cowards and undeserving of being remembered.

  • Napoleon should have never set foot in Russia. He misjudged the weather, planned really poorly, and lost almost half a million men! He let power get to his head and that ultimately became his downfall. He was also fighting wars on two fronts! Sounds familiar right?? 😉 Nazi Germany made the exact same mistakes in WWII. They tried to invade Russia, power went to Hitler's head, and he fought a war on two fronts. If I were Napoleon, I wouldn't have invaded Russia at all. Hell, I wouldn't have invaded Spain either because the Spanish Campaign was a disaster! A huge waste for Napoleon! After the failure in Russia, he was doomed. There was no recovering from that. Austria joining the Sixth Coalition made matters worse. He should've listened to that messanger. But again, his power went to his head! See how this can be bad??

  • It is actually somewhat astonishing that Napoleon lost in 1813.

    He had them, that armistice killed him. One more win and he could have had a very reasonable peace.

  • I feel as though everyone in the comments is sucking napoleon off for holding off so many opponents
    But in the end he lost, Russians got to Paris and they actually didn't allow Paris to burn down (that's called morality)
    Russia was fighting against literally the whole of Europe and destroyed everyone on its own and yet Kutuzov is not a genius but Napoleon is?

  • Wow so basically my family’s estates got a right old trampling! My 4 x Great Grandfather, Otto Ernst von Heldreich’s estate at Alsbach just west of Dresden was right in the firing line… he, however was a prisoner of war in Ashbourne, Derbyshire in Great Britain after being captured at the Siege of Flushing (Vlissingen) in 1809… the family held estates near Bautzen & Görlitz some of which are still extant to this day ☺️
