Day of Reckoning

Written by Admin | Tags:

The resolute Republique of France and its people have undergone many tribulations since their experiences in the early 19th Century. Once it was an imperial power that looked set to challenge the Prussians as masters of Western Europe, and the Britannians as rulers of the oceans. But these dreams were shattered by a series of catastrophic events at the dawn of the century.

Such was the speed of its fall from grace that France, which in 1804 had dictated the fate of other nations, had by 1815 been virtually reduced to the role of spectator to events. The future of Europe and a considerable part of the world besides was decided on the fields of Waterloo, but the Republique’s fate was out of its hands entirely.

However, since that time, the Republique has not languished in despair. Having reached, as they saw it, the very lowest depths of despair, the French spent the following decades dedicating all their efforts and energies into rebuilding their nation and its glory.

Now, as the 1870s dawn, and the world is gripped by crisis, France sees at last the chance to regain its rightful place as a great power. The self-satisfied, naysayers and complacent, at home and abroad, who in the past have sought to write off the Republique’s fortunes will soon be proven very wrong.

Many of our eager forum-goers have been clamouring for some more shots of the Republique of France. Not one to disappoint, here they are in all their painted glory!
