Though ITTL there's no Waterloo, so there's that.

The monarchs of Europe and Wellington: "We can't have our ass beaten without getting closer!"Napoleon II: *pulls off a Napoleon I.*
All of European monarchs and Wellington collectively: *puts hands on face and starts yelling* "oh my god!!!" *Starts mobilizing their armies in anticipation on an invasion of France.*
Napoleon II: "oh? Your approaching me, Napoleon? Instead of running away, you're coming right to me?" *Produces an army of six-hundred-thousand men right out of thin air.*
Prussia: I can’t beat the shit out of you without coming any closer.Napoleon II: "oh? Your approaching me, Napoleon? Instead of running away, you're coming right to me?"
Napoleon II: Wait...what? Then come as close as you like.The monarchs of Europe and Wellington: "We can't have our ass beaten without getting closer!"
Thanks for the support! I’m glad to be back as well.Just in general, I'm happy to see you back!
I’m still drafting the next chapters so it might be a few weeks before that is released as well.excellent quality in the writing and story! I can't wait for more! ^-^
It’s always was lol.It lives!
Yup. This also shows that I intend for his reign to be markedly different from that of OTL’s Napoleon III and his French Empire.And I think the latest update makes us remember that Napoleon II is indeed half Habsburg by virtue of his mother; his ability to project the Bonapartist mystique while retaining the Habsburg charm and determination will prove to aid him.
Vive L’Empereur! Vive la France!It has returned!
Thanks! I’m glad you’re enjoying it!Great update and writing style.
Yup.I'm really excited to read about the 1848 revolutions and what you have planned for Spain. They seem like interesting times ahead.
I mean so far, without the Hundred Days, the Imperial Court is less scared of the Bonaparte’s. Thus Emperor Franz is much closer to Napoleon II. I plan on elaborating on Napoleon’s relationship with his Habsburg family members later, but let’s just say that being the only grandson in Vienna for a while will have its own benefits to Napoleon. Of course Metternich wouldn’t really like this since he resonates more with people like Charles X.Any major differences in the situation in Austria from OTL?
Thanks! Glad you’re enjoying it!Hârika.
Thanks for the compliments! I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter. It took a bit longer since it was longer than the last two chapters. I think I might incorporate some of this writing style in my Komnenian Timeline when the main action for the Crisis of the Thirteenth Century begins. That's like one chapter away as I'm working on the Bulgarian chapter.It is back! After so long it has returned with a excellent chapter
Well yes but actually nond the calm before the storm that will be Napoleon II
I'll try to have it up as soon as I can! Thanks for the support.looking VERY foward to the next chapter!
Thanks man! It took a while to finally type out. Funny enough, it ended up longer than what I had originally intended. I accidentally deleted a quarter of my original draft and had to spend a while hastily retyping that last section from scratch.This is a great update
Yeah the Austrians always fascinated me as a polity. While the Austrian Empire was technically founded in 1806, it can be argued that the actual start of the Empire goes back to the 15th Century since the Empire stems from Habsburg dynastic rule. I'll go more into details about Austria's relationship with Hungary, and Hungary's own structures and history when I get to the 1848 Revolutions. Let's just say that the Habsburgs are in for a very different ride than in otl. Interpret that how you may wish.not only does it help set the stage for upcoming events, there's also a great deal of background information about the Austrian Empire which is interesting to know in general.
Glad to be back! I'll try to get the next chapter up soon. That chapter will most likely be covering the Two Sicilies ruled by the Bourbons, and the Murats. It will also explain some of the reasoning/foundations between the Bonaparte/Murat blood feud that will appear throughout Napoleon II's reign.Glad to see this timeline has returned!
I could PM you some videos/reading material about the 19th Century/1848 and these revolutions if you'd like. That's honestly how I discovered this era: by actively doing research on my own. None of this was really talked about in my school (I'm an American) and the mid 19th Century is all but a footnote compared to the US Civil War. The stuff going on the 19th Century quite fascinated me because so many things that set the stage for our modern world and the lead up to the First World War were setup through these events.I've been keeping an eye on this timeline, and I'll probably lurk around silently due to my unknowing of the contemporary era.
Thanks for the support!But consider me intrigued enough to come out and say 'subscribed!'
I'm not quite sure to be honest. Though I do plan for some changes. Though I could see France setup some informal protectorates/client-states in Southeast Asia operation through cooperation and economic concessions. French Indochina could have a native King with the Emperor recognized as the nominal Suzzerain as perhaps a sort of "King of Kings."On another note, as a Southeast Asian, I wonder what shall Napoleon II's colonial policy would be towards the region. Will there be earlier adventures in Indochina, Borneo, or the East Indies?
