    EPISODE 8 - PEACE WITH THE OTTOMANS Emmanuel's plan was to conquer more land of Prussia to force them to sign a peace treaty. French diplomats were able to sign a treaty with Anhalt and Hesse to get military access for the French army. Thousands of French troops were heading towards Berlin and the Prussian exclave Schweinfurt. On the 11th of May in 1846, Henri launched a last 5000 troops strong attack on the Ottoman Empire. His plan was to conquer the Ottoman capital Istanbul and more main land of the Ottoman Empire to get a better position in the final peace treaties. The main French troops captured many cities in the Balkan region, while other French troops were fighting heavily to capture the city Istanbul. The French troops were advancing fast, while the Russian and Austrian troops were supporting the fight against the Ottoman Empire. The end was near, so France signed a peace treaty with the Ottoman Empire on the 23rd of November in 1846. It meant the full annexation of the Ottoman territories in Africa by France. Oh, and France got Istanbul (or Constantinople? idk).

    EPISODE 7 - WAR AGAINST PRUSSIA Bertrand Clausel prepared over 8700 troops to hold back the first Prussian troops. Over 5000 troops from the south captured the Prussian cities Saarbrücken and Trewir. The Prussian army was able to push back the French troops, while Bertrand tried to coordinate and recruit new troops. Nearly 300 troops from the Kingdom of the Two Sicillies tried to land in Modelburg but failed. Bertrand was able to organise and prepare 7000 French troops in a line near the rhine. On the 9th of June in 1845, he launched a counter attack on Prussia. Sadly, Bertrand was hit by a bullet in heavy fights around Arnheim and he died shortly after that. Louis was badly hurt by this shocking message but he ordered Emmanuel Gérard to take over Bertrands duties. Emmanuel ordered to continue the counter attack with capturing the cities Siegen, Dortmund and Münster. Only the attack against Siegen failed, so Emmanuel gathered 2700 troops for the first and 2000 additional troops for the second attack. The northern regiments sucessfully conquered the cities Kassel, Bielefeld and Brilon. On the 22nd of December, also Qajar and the Russian Empire joined the war against the Ottoman Empire. Now, the Ottoman Empire was completely surrounded by enemys and it was clear that they couldn't stand any longer.

    EPISODE 6 - BATTLES IN THE BALKAN Henri ordered his brigade that landed in Ioannia to advance north and capture important cities like Tirana and Tessaloniki. The French troops had to advance through the Balkan Mountain Range and through dense forest, but they still tried to advance quickly. Now, the French troops split themself and marched towards Istanbul and the Austrian mainland. Henri also ordered 1500 troops to attack Montenegro on the 15th of April in 1844, but the invasion failed. Meanwhile, the tuberculosis began to spread in south Europe and affected French territory. Many attacks failed and more and more French soldiers died in terrifying battles. The Ottomans came into a stalemate with the French troops in west Balkan and landed in Durres. Within months the Ottoman troops were able to destroy the whole French brigade and to recapture all their land in the Balkan. Henri escaped through Austria and travelled to Paris to meet Louis. On the 30th of August in 1844, Prussia declared war on France. The message was shocking and Louis was horrified. Louis didn't expect such a big war, but he ordered Betrand Clausel to prepare an army and to defend the French territory. Now Louis feared that other countries could also declare war on France, why he strengthened the diplomatic relations with many other big countries.

    EPISODE 5 - HOT WAR The city Tunis fell just in a few days and France was able to advance quickly towards Tripolis. The French troops captured the important city Tripolis and Henri ordered the troops to move on and capture the important city Tripolis. Meanwhile the Austrian Empier was able to hold back the Ottomans with financial help of France. Austria stationed their troops at good defended positions. The French campaign against the Ottoman Empire was doing very good, but the French troops near the Sahara Desert got small problems with the temperature. Louis decided to land on the mainland of the Ottoman Empire and ordered Henri to prepare their troops. Henri ordered a landing on the bad defended Ottoman city Ioannina with a brigade with over 10'000 well trained troops. Louis received a surprising war declaration of the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies on the 21st of January in 1844. He decided to finish the Ottomans first, but he sent two regiments anyways, so France can defend their islands Corsica and Sardinia.

    EPISODE 4 - THE FRENCH-SWISS WAR France had very good relations to the Austrian Empire and Louis received an information from the Austrian Empire, that they are at war with the Ottoman Empire. Louis didn't want that the Ottoman Empire had more influence in Europe, but Louis decided not to join this war at first. His plan was to invade Switzerland first, so he ordered his general Henri Marques to mobilize 2 brigades (18'500 troops). On the 31st of October in 1841, a brigade from the north west launched an successful attack on important cities, like Geneva, Basel and Zürich. Another brigade invaded the Swiss cantons Valais and Tessin from the south. The three southern regiments had some problems advancing through the Alps, but they were still able to be quick. Then, Henri ordered four regiments to cross the river Aare and capture the Swiss capital Bern. Two other regiments invaded the eastern cantons Grisons and Thurgau. Switzerland capitulated on the 26th of December in 1841. The Ottomans were able to conquer more and more land of the Austrian Empire. Louis decided to intervene and ordered Henri to attack the African territory of the Ottoman Empire. Two French brigades (17'000 troops) under Henri Marques crossed the border to the Ottoman Empire on the 30th of October in 1842 and captured the city Bizerte. The vassals of the Ottoman Empire declared war on France on the 27 of November.

    EPISODE 3 - THE FRENCH-SARDINIAN WAR Louis was very happy about the successful campaign against the north and he decided to continue with Sardinia. Again, Louis gave Bertrand Clausel the command over the "Brigade Sarde" with about 13'000 troops. France declared war on the 13th of July. Bertrand's plan was to attack the city of Besançon with one regiment and attacking the Sardinian capital Turin with two regiments under his command. Bertrand's brother Alain captured the city Nice with another regiment. The first attacks were successful but thousands French soldiers died. The French troops advanced deeper into enemy territory, but Alain's attack on Savona failed. Alain was killed with his whole regiment. This was a big shock for Bertrand, but he had to continue. Unexpectedly, the biggest part of the Sardinian army was stationed in Savona and Bertrand decided to focus all regiments on Savona and attacking the Sardinian citys in the east with only one Battalion. Meanwhile, the French regiment under Léon Pétin had to defend Corsica against the attacking Sardinian troops from the south. Léon launched an counterattack on the 25th of January in 1840 and he slowly managed to capture important citys and harbours of Sardinia. Sardinia surrendered after hard fights on the 22nd of March in 1840. Their territory got fully occupied by France. France had good relations to the great powers of Europe, except for the Ottoman Empire and Prussia. Louis knew, that something big is going to happen soon.

    EPISODE 2 - "OPÉRATION RECONQUÊTE DU NORD" (2) Bertrand prepared over 13'000 troops and sent them to the border of the Netherlands and Luxemburg. France declared war on the Natherlands and to the Dutch vassal Luxemburg on the 24th of March in 1838. Two regiments under Colonel Léon Pétin and Alain Rouge attacked the citys Middelburg and Breda. Two other regiments conquered the city of Eindhoven with much Dutch resistance. Another regiment under the command of Bertrand attacked the city of Luxembourg from the north west and from the south. The attacks were successful but the two regiments that attacked Eindhoven were nearly completely destroyed and both Colonels were dead. Bertrand sent his regiment north to support the war against the Netherlands and Léon's regiment attacked the city of Rotterdam. Alain's regiment attacked Arnheim to replace the two destroyed regiments. The attacks were successful, so Léon continued with attacking Amsterdam and Utrecht with each a half regiment. Alain advanced north and captured the citys Leeuwarden, Zwolle and Groningen. Meanwhile, the French colony in South America had to defend against the attacking Dutch troops from the west. A regiment under Alexandre Plateau managed to push back the enemy troops and to advance into their territory. The citys Wageningen, Kabalebo and Alalapadi were captured easily. The Netherlands and Luxemburg signed the Peace Treaty of Amsterdam on the 11th of September in 1838. Louis decided to leave the northern part of the Netherlands, because not many French lived there and France wasn't interested in this rebelious region. But Louis let a puppet government come to power, so he still had power there.

    EPISODE 1 - "OPÉRATION RECONQUÊTE DU NORD" (1) From 1830 to 1836, Louis reorganized the economy and increased the welfare in his country. Louis also brought back the "Grande Armée" and structured it like under the rule of Napoleon. On the 1st of January in 1836, Louis sent French diplomats to the United Kingdom, Spain, Austria and to the Russian Empire. Their objective was to improve the diplomatic relations between France and these countries. That was something very important for Louis' plans. The Netherlands and Luxemburg were part of the First French Empire from 1805 to 1815, and Belgium even from 1795 to 1815. In Louis' eyes they should get French again, starting with Belgium. On the 29th of January in 1836, Louis gave his good friend and talented general Bertrand Clausel the supreme command over the "Opération Reconquête du Nord". The French troops were ready soon. Bertrand's 10,500 troops strong brigade was divided into three regiments. France declared war on Belgium on the 10th of August. The first regiment under Colonel Léon Pétin conquered the city Bruges in north west Belgium. The second and main regiment under General Bertrand Clausel took the city of Namur and the third regiment under Colonel Alain Clausel advanced through the Ardennes and took the important city of Liége. The French attacks were successful with some losses. Now, Bertrand ordered the first and second regiment to besiege and capture the Belgian capital Brussels. The third regiment divided itself and captured the citys of Genk and Malmedy. The French invasion was successful and Belgium surrendered just after 3 months. Many Belgian citizens were happy to be a part of France again, but of course some people were angry, especially the former powerful people of Belgium, because they lost the sovereignty of their country.
