While ruling, Napoleon made three major mistakes that led to his downfall. The First was implementing the Continental System to try and make Europe self sufficient and stop British economy. The second was the Peninsular war which was caused because Napoleon tried to get Portugal to accept the Continental system. The final mistake was trying to invade Russia, which led to his army being destroyed

Russia just destroyed so much of my army!! This sucks!
Despite suffering defeat, Napoleon was able to raise a new army, but they were untrained and unprepared. In 1813, the new French army went up against the allied powers outside of Leipzig, however they were defeated. Soon after, the allies, led by King Frederick and Czar Alexander I triumphed through Paris. They exiled Napoleon to an island off the coast of Italy.
After hearing that the French subjects feared that King Louis XVII was going to undo all the Revolution’s reforms, Napoleon escaped from the island and was welcomed as emperor of France. From there, the British army got ready for battle near the village, Waterloo. Napoleon attacked the British army and eventually defeated. Not taking any chances, the British exiled to St. Helena, an island in the South Atlantic. He lived there for 6 years and died from a stomach ailment
Guess I should not have tried to conquer Europe so hard. Now I am on Island 2.0

The rulers of Europe were nervous of another revolution, so Czar Alexander I of Russia, King Frederick William III of Prussia and Emperor Francis I of Austria made The Holy Alliance, where they had relations based on Christian principles. Metternich also made the Concert of Europe where if one country had a revolution, others would help them stop it
Just remember to help ALL of Europe
The Congress of Vienna was one of the most successful peace meetings ever, leaving 40 years of peace. France's power diminished while Britain and Prussia increased. Nationalism in Italy, Germany, Greece, and other areas had increased due to foreign influence in these countries. This was the beginning of a new era
