From Louis XIV to Napoleon: The Fate of a Great Power


Add your own review!

Overview

Much of the period 1661-1815 appeared to be the age of France. France was the greatest power in Western Europe in the late 17th and 18th centuries and Louis XIV and Napoleon seemed to dominate their periods. Yet when Louis XIV died, and again after Napoleon's attempt to resume power was defeated at Waterloo, France appears as a failed power. This text provides an account of the period which considers why France was not more successful and throws light on French history, international relations, warfare and the rise and fall of French power. It looks at France's failures from both a European and a global perspective.
