Dust and Ashes
France is a Kingdom torn apart from civil unrest and rapid change in government in a short span of time. After assisting the Revolutionary American Forces against Great Britain during the U.S. bid for freedom, the King of France found his throne threatened when the underclass rose up in a bloody rebellion of staggering proportions against the ruling nobility.
Napoleon would rise to power after the French Revolution ended and the established nobility and all been brutally torn from their lofty positions. He declared himself Emperor Napoleon I in the year 1804 AD. He would conquer large portions of land for France and the Empire’s power grew to incredible heights, though unfortunately for him everything would change after the doomed invasion of Russia.
Napoleon I was eventually ousted from his seat and the Monarchs would rule the nation once again, though with drastically weakened executive ability.
By 1889 France is enjoying a relative, and much welcome, peace.
