The peninsular war was a setback for Napoleon

Napoleon IAS Emperor 1804 – 1815

In 1804, Napoleon called himself as Napoleon I the emperor of France. As an emperor he wanted to establish the French empire and waged several wars.

Napoleon lost the naval battle of Trafalgar in 1805 at the hands of the English. In the battle of Austerlitz Napoleon defeated the Austrians. He defeated Prussia at Jena. He defeated Russia at Friedland and Concluded the Treaty of Tilsit with the czar. Napoleon wanted to defeat England and thus devised the economic blockade, but it failed. England was the only country that was undefeated by Napoleon in 1812, took place the Peninsular war, in which Napoleon after conquering Spain made his brother Joseph Bonaparte as the King of Spain. As a result the people of Spain revolted and drove the French out of Spain. The peninsular war was a setback for Napoleon thus.

In 1813, Napoleon organized the Russian campaign. When the French entered Russia it was winter and the Russians began guerilla warfare. Napoleon called for the withdrawal of the French troops. The Russian campaign failed. After the Russian campaign England, Austria and Prussia fought against Napoleon in the battle of Leipzig and defeated him. He was captured and sent as a prisoner to the island of St. Elba Napoleon escaped and later recaptured Paris and ruled again for 100 days. The allies i.e., England, Austria, Russia and Prussia declared a final war against Napoleon in 1815, called the famous Battle of Waterloo in which Napoleon tasted the final defeat. He was taken as a prisoner to the island of St. Helena, where he died in 1821.

      I wonder if he really was motivated by love of his country, or he was just another greedy, power hungry, little man.
