    The peace established by the conference of Pläswitz was a fragile
    one at best. It would only take a few years for the situation in Europe
    to spiral out of control again.

    Austria saw the peace as something permanent and something that would
    last. Napoleon saw it as only a truce. Only 4 years after the congress had been
    held, Napoleon’s army once again invaded the East bank of the Rhine.
    A coalition consisting of Britain, Prussia, Russia The Netherlands, Austria,
    many minor German states, Russia and Italy was swiftly formed. Napoleon
    – much like how he had done earlier – quickly conquered the German states such as Baden, Hesse Kassel, Saxony, Württemberg and Bavaria.

    His only ally was the Two Sicilies, which despised the Kingdom of Italy and
    was mostly with him because of an “Enemy of my enemy,” attitude which was
    prevalent in the ruling body of the Two Sicilies at the time.

    Despite his successes in the German Confederation, his victory wouldn’t be as long-lived as in the previous wars. His armies were held back by coalition
    forces at the battle of Reichenberg (Liberec) in 1820, and was later gradually reduced in the battles of Dresden, Jena and Bonn. The remnants
    of his army were later decisively defeated in the battle of Arlon.

    During this war many territories “de jure,” loyal to Napoleon, such as
    Switzerland and Piedmont rebelled and the non-French majorities of the
    countries would later merge with other states or form their own ones.

    After the war, several plebiscites were held in the French territories of Belgium,
    Switzerland and Piedmont. In which predominantly French areas in most cases
    joined with France and the non-French areas did not. Several German states
    which joined Napoleon were also reduced in size and made dependent on
    one of the two dominant powers in the region, Austria and Prussia.

    Napoleon was also exiled to the Island of Elba and France was made into a
    kingdom again. In a bid to win popular support and secure trade routes in
    the Mediterranean, Louis XVIII conquered the port cities of Oran, Algiers
    and Bône, leading to the look of the map as you see it – 20 years after
    the Congress of Pläswitz.
