RUSSIA AND THE NAPOLEONIC WARS

RUSSIA AND THE NAPOLEONIC WARS: A HISTORICAL REFLECTION
JAMES OLUSEGUN ADEYERI

This paper is an evaluation of Russia’s role in European politics and diplomacy between 1803 and 1815 with particular respect to the Napoleonic wars of that period, and the post-war international diplomacy initiatives of the great powers. The paper concludes that the outcome of the Russian war of 1812 in favour of Russia coupled with her active participation in the Vienna congress of 1815 and subsequent conferences of that era strengthened Russia’s sense of its own greatness as a modern state and great power, and also set the stage for her epochal roles in European international relations during subsequent decades.
