Klappentext

Excerpt from Life and Times of Alexander I, Vol. 3 of 3: Emperor of All the Russias The battle of Leipsic caused a great sensation throughout every part of Europe still in any way connected with France; and Napoleon's flight across the Rhine convinced his partisans that, although he still declared he had gained a succession of victories, their result bore all the consequences of a decisive defeat. The appearance of an Austrian army in the north of Italy increased the agitation in that country, and Murat perceived that to keep his throne he must make peace with the Allies. He had been very favourably impressed by the Russians, and on his return to Naples appeared more than once at a fete with all his courtiers dressed as Cossacks. Added to this growing predilection, he smarted under the insults heaped on him by Napoleon, who had no right to complain of ingratitude from those Sovereigns who turned against him; for, in the first place, they had fully earned the honours he had bestowed, not as gifts, but as recompenses, and often bribes; and, in the second, he had already repaid himself by the enjoyment of humiliating these new-made kings, and constantly reminding them that their power and dignities were only derived from his.
