    The hard part about this question is understanding the mechanics that make empires work. Quick expansion needs sustainability behind it, and Napoleon didn't have that.

    However, if we hypothesize that he conquered and united Europe with no breakdown, his Empire would have still failed sooner or later. After the age of nationalism (18th century), you can't just create empires that span continents because they will shatter into distinct cultural and ethnic entities.

    Take the Hapsburg Empire for example, shattered into pieces based on ethnic demographics. Same happened to the Soviet Union and Jugoslavia. They weren't able to sustain empires with different nationalities because they demanded independence.

    This is currently happening to Britain. The British Empire already lost lots of lands, and now the big question is whether they can grant enough independence to Scotland so that they don't just leave.
