Historical background


THE HUNDRED DAYS

(20/03/1815-22/06/1815)

April 6, 1814, Napoleon signed his abdication. By the Treaty of Fontainebleau of 11 April, the Allies recognized him as emperor with the sovereignty of Elba Island and income two million. They also agree to Marie-Louise sovereignty of the duchies of Parma, Piacenza and Guastalla. Napoleon bade farewell to his custody on April 20 and arrived on the island of Elba May 4, 1814 where he will focus on the administration of his "empire". Concerned by the Congress of Vienna and the presence of the prince imperial Schönbrunn, aided by partisans, Napoleon landed at Golfe-Juan on 1 March 1815 and moved to Paris by road in the Alps. He rallied the troops and 21 March arrives triumphantly at the Tuileries, this is the beginning of the Hundred Days. He quickly publishes a Supplementary Act to the Constitutions of the Empire to reconnect with the revolutionary ideal. Against him, the powers met at the Congress of Vienna formed a new coalition. In June, Napoleon defeated the Prussians at Ligny on 16 but it definitely loses Waterloo 18. Returning to Paris, he signed his second abdication on June 22 in favor of his son, recognized by Chambers as Napoleon II. This is the end of a period of one hundred days. Napoleon indulges in English on July 15 that decide to deport him on the island of St. Helena, where he arrived in October. He dictated his memoirs and the story of his campaigns before dying in 1821 at the age of fifty-two.
