The Napoleonic Wars - this name is mainly known for the wars that were waged against Napoleon Bonaparte by various European states when he was First Consul and Emperor of France (November 1799 - June 1815). In a broader sense, this includes both Napoleon's Italian campaign (1796-1797) and his Egyptian expedition (1798-1799), although these (especially the Italian campaign) are usually classified as so-called revolutionary wars. At least 3 million people became victims of the Napoleonic wars.
The coup of 18 Brumaire of the 7th year (November 9, 1799) established the power of Napoleon in France just at a time when old Europe was in complete disorganization: the governments were completely incapable of joint action and were ready to change the common cause for the sake of private benefits; the old order reigned everywhere, both in administration, and in finance, and in the army - orders, the inefficiency of which was revealed at the first serious clash with the more modern Napoleonic France.
All this made Bonaparte the ruler of mainland Europe. Even before 18 Brumaire, being the commander-in-chief of the Italian army, Napoleon began to redistribute the political map of Europe, and during the era of his expedition to Ottoman Egypt and Syria, he made grandiose plans for the East. Having become the First Consul, he dreamed that, in alliance with the Russian Emperor Paul I, to knock out Great Britain from the position that she occupied in India.
But in 1801, Paul I was killed as a result of a conspiracy, and Austria, which suffered most from the blows of France in general and from Bonaparte in particular, entered into an alliance with Great Britain in 1805; the British fleet defeated the naval forces of France at Trafalgar; Napoleon was forced to move his army against Austria. This determined the beginning of a new 10-year period of uninterrupted wars in Europe.
