The Holy Roman Empire is the Walking DeadNapoleon's victory over Austria has broken the back of the Holy Roman Empire. Emperor Francis the 2nd is forced to concede all the land left of the Rhine to France, and a large portion of what is modern day Germany is reorganized by Napoleon into what will eventually be called the Confederation of the Rhine or as some cynics might call it, Napoleon's Supply Depot. Certainly he will draw many trained troops from the region who will remain true to Napoleon as long as he keeps winning. The Holy Roman Empire will linger in name, but in reality it is no more. In a few more years, Emperor Francis the 2nd will change his name to Emperor Francis the 1st of the Austrian Empire and start another war with Napoleon, but that will turn into an even worse defeat, forcing Emperor Francis to ally with France and marry off his daughter, Marie Louise, to Napoleon, the man who had defeated him. That is a difficult pill for any father to swallow but his family is well-known for selling off its daughters for political reasons and he had let the French guillotine his aunt, Marie Antoinette, rather than offer any concessions for her release. So... feel sorry for his daughter but not for him.  
Thomas Jefferson is the Walking President
- We are all republicans--we are all federalists. --Thomas Jefferson, Inaugural Address, March 4, 1801
The Submarine Nautilus LaunchesRobert Fulton has built the first recognizable modern submarine and it's all for France. When he first proposed the idea he got the runaround, and very little funding, but he has managed to put together an experimental model that is run by two men turning a hand-crank that powers a propeller. It can maintain a speed a little faster than a rowboat, submerge to 25 feet and deploy mines, but when Napoleon shows up for a demonstration, the submarine is in repair. Napoleon believes he is being conned. Fulton will try again later but he will be rebuffed. Then the UK will pay Fulton to build one for them in the same way that a major company will buy a smaller one and then let it dribble off to nothing. Fulton's submarine was a little too good to leave to the French and by the time Fulton gets to the UK, the war with France will be over. Fulton will move to the United States and produce a workable steamboat.
