Why did Napoleon I not raise the people to fight the opponents of France after the Battle of Waterloo? Ponder if there could have been a different turn of events than the one that happened.
On June 18, 1815, the Battle of Waterloo (in Belgium, south of Brussels) took place, which the French army lost. In the last battle, the famous words of General Cabronn were heard: “The Guards are dying, but they are not surrendering!” Exhausted France could not continue the war. The emperor’s only and last chance would have been to arm the people, but he could not and did not want to do this. “I don’t want to be the king of the Jacquerie,” (the king of the reign, not the king of war) – he declared and refused to resist. The Napoleonic Wars are over.
