This monograph is a study of Bernadotte and of Swedish diplomacy during the strenuous period between 1810 and 1814. It traces and analyzes Bernadotte’s success in gradually building a bulwark of alliances assuring him possession of Norway; his part in the campaigns of 1813 and 1814, which swept the armies of France from the Vistula back to the Seine; and his own conquest of Denmark. The general reader as well as the specialist will find much interesting material in this vivid account of the founding of the only “Napoleonic” dynasty which still survives.
