The Fall of Napoleon

The Fall of Napoleon

Join Dr. Munro Price, University of Bradford, to hear the story of the dramatic two years leading up to Napoleon's abdication in April 1814, during which time he lost both his European empire and his control over France itself. Such an outcome was by no means inevitable, and at several key moments Napoleon's enemies offered him peace terms that would have allowed him to keep his throne, if not his empire. However, he consistently rejected such a compromise, instead to gamble on total victory at the risk of utter defeat. This talk will attempt to shed some new light on this conundrum that led directly to Napoleon's fall.
