The Napoleonic Wars were a series of major conflicts pitting the French Empire and its allies. This was lead by Napolean. Napolean was really good with strategizing which helped him win some wars. But there were some losing battles which put France at a worse spot then what they already were at.
Napolean lost his war to Waterloo, his final defeat, so he was exiled. But he returned 100 days later. After the wars, they came up with the Congress of Vienna where they redrew Europes maps.
