    He also brought out 1, wounded men. Then, inNapoleon centralized the Republic into an Empire, crowning himself Emperor that December. Other coalition forces which were either converging on France, mobilised to defend the homelands, or in the process of mobilisation included: A Russian Army, commanded by Michael Andreas Barclay de Tollyand marching towards France A Reserve Russian Army to support de Tolly if required. The Austrians flooded the battle with more cavalry and infantry regiments to Ulm-Jungingen hoping to score a knockout blow against Ney's corps by enveloping Dupont's force. As the Austrians were marching out of Ulm to surrender, a combined Franco-Spanish fleet was being destroyed at the Battle of Trafalgar. But one enemy remained.

    Napoleon no longer trusted the Spanish, and had little use for them with their fleet in shambles and Portugal having capitulated. His conquest and reorganization of Italy and most of Germany had also inspired nationalists. Despite his amazing generalship and tactical brilliance, Napoleon failed to win the battle, and suffered one of the most decisive defeats of his career. There was an attempt by the French to invade Ireland and support a rebellion against the British, but it was foiled by foul weather. However, Napoleon was not satisfied with Russia, which was making little to no effort to enforce the Continental System. This almost caused a war to break out when the Tsar pointed out to Castlereagh that Russia hadmen near Poland and Saxony and he was welcome to try to remove them.

    He also wrote an epic poem that was highly influential on the popular image of that battle in France. Austrian preparations Edit General Mack thought that Austrian security relied on sealing off the gaps through the mountainous Black Forest area in Southern Germany that had witnessed much fighting during the campaigns of the French Revolutionary Wars. Nominally commanded by Archduke Ferdinandthe army's real authority was Mack. Napoleon knew that, just as inhe would be overwhelmed by sheer numbers if he allowed the Coalition to form a unified army. In any event, the Russian army, an ally of Prussia, still remained far away when Prussia declared war. Posing the hand inside the waistcoat was often used in portraits of rulers to indicate calm and stable leadership.
