    United Kingdom of Netherlands (1815) Military Regiments

    I have been trying to search up a Royal Guard Regiment for The United Kingdom of Netherlands during 1815 for the past few hours and the best I've gotten to is the Royal Marechaussee which served as a Provost/Military Police more than a Royal Guard. I was curious if anyone has any...

    Do you think Napoleon would have kept the liberal reforms he made in 1815?

    I'm re-reading Andrew Roberts' Napoleon the Great and in the second last chapter, Waterloo, there's an interesting paragraph that I'd forgotten about in-between my reads of the book: Unfortunately since all of this happened mere months before his final defeat and exile we'll likely never know...

    What would you say is the most peaceful period of European History?

    What would you say is the most peaceful period of European History? For me it would be 1945- present and 1815-1914 Yes i know there where some wars in Europe between 1815 and 1914. And also after 1945. But compared to other times in European history these two periods have been very peaceful.

    What if the French lost Corsica in 1815?

    What if as a part of the Congress Vienna agreement, France keeps Nice and Savoy, but cedes Corsica to Sardinia-Piedmont?

    The Battle of New Orleans, Jan. 8th, 1815

    Andrew Jackson, the future president, famously defeated a British army just outside New Orleans, two weeks after the Treaty of Ghent formally ended the War of 1812. Jackson's force seems to have been pretty cosmopolitan - including free blacks, allied pirates, and backwoods militiamen. Among...

    Venice Restored 1815

    So let's suppose that in 1815 Venice is restored with all its pre 1797 territories: Venice, Dalmatia, Istria, and the Ionian Islands. Could Venice united Italy along with/in spite of Piedmont-Sardinia? With Venice reestablished, could Italy unite earlier? Could Italy's colonial holdings be...

    The Battle of Ligny, (Fleurus) 1815

    The Prussian army at Ligny received a severe mauling from the French. Would the outcome of the battle have been different had it been commanded by another general, for example Gneisenau instead of Blucher or, was the outcome Bluchers fault?
