My, My, at Waterloo, Napoleon did surrender. #waterloo #bonaparte #regency #romance

So who was Napoleon? And why was Waterloo important?

The easy bit is that Napoleon was a Corsican soldier who fought for the French in their revolution. By the time he was twenty four, he'd become a general. 

Four years later, he'd run rings around the Austrians - winning practically every battle against them. He conquered the Italian Peninsula and became a war hero.

In 1799 he used his expedition to Egypt springboard his

political career and become a French consul. 
Four years later, he became French Emperor. 
His army rampaged around Europe and finally invaded the Iberian Peninsula, hoping to cut off British trade with the rest of Europe. Along the way, he declared his brother the King of Italy. 
The British weren't very keen on that.
Enter  Arthur Wellesley - a British general who rose to become a Field Marshall during the Peninsula War. He led the allies to victory at Vitoria.  His exploits won him a Dukedom and he became the Duke of Wellington.
Napoleon refused to stay down. He escaped exile from Elba and raised another army.
The allies did the same. 
The allies faced Napoleon's army at Waterloo in Belgium. And, my, my, at Waterloo, Napoleon did surrender. 

I loved finding Napoleon quotes for this post, just like I enjoyed researching my latest Regency Romance, 
Wickedly Used.

While he is no stranger to pleasurable company from ladies of the night, Major Richard Rothbury of the royal dragoons is not the kind of man who will stand idly by as a woman is taken against her will, and when he witnesses a disreputable cad attempting to force himself on a girl in a back alley, he does not hesitate to intervene.

But after the grateful young woman offers herself to Rothbury, he is shocked to discover that not only was she no harlot, she was a maiden and he has deflowered her. Furious at the girl’s scandalous behavior and her carelessness with her own safety, Rothbury chastises her soundly.

Though she is due to inherit one of the largest fortunes in England, the fact that she cannot touch the money until she marries or turns thirty has kept Elizabeth completely at the mercy of her cruel uncle, and for years she has been treated as if she were a servant. Her encounter with Lord Rothbury is by far the most exciting thing that has ever happened to her, but while he shows great concern for her safety, he refuses to believe that she is anything more than a serving girl.

Despite having made it clear that he doesn’t consider a match between them to be possible, when Elizabeth disobeys him Rothbury proves more than ready to strip her bare, punish her harshly, and then enjoy her beautiful body in the most shameful of ways. But can she dare to hope that he will one day make her his wife, or is she destined to spend her life being wickedly used?
