Scope and content

Containing a significant amount of information concerning the latter years of Napoleon’s reign (ca. 1810-1815), this carton would be of particular interest to researchers interested in the Armistice at Pleswitz and the diplomatic negotiations surrounding the Treaty of Fontainebleau. Diplomatic dealings between Metternich and Caulaincourt are particularly heavily represented. The dense copies of diplomatic correspondence could be of considerable interest to researchers with a sharp focus on the day-to-day negotiations concerning Pleswitz and Fontainebleau.

In addition, Folder 17 contains an unpublished description of the post-Waterloo Hundred Days by Caulaincourt. Therein, Caulaincourt recounts a broad narrative from the defeat at Waterloo to the Bourbon Restoration, including important descriptions of the question of succession and of the final push made by the Allies to restore Louis XVIII to the throne.
