A map illustrating the rise and apogee of the First French Empire, the dominant force in the European continent between 1804 and 1814 (and briefly for Hundred Days in 1815) under Napoleon Bonaparte. The Napoleonic Wars established French military hegemony in Europe in the early 19th century as far as Poland and southern Italy and delivered sweeping french victories, spectacular defeats, restoration of the monarchy, followed by a second republic, a second empire, and then a third republic in the nineteenth century alone.
