Alternate Histories – Napoleon And The Conquest Of The World!

One of the earliest works of alternate history published in large quantities for the reception of a large audience may be Louis Geoffroy’s Histoire de la Monarchie universelle: Napoléon et la conquête du monde (1812–1832) (History of the Universal Monarchy: Napoleon And The Conquest Of The World) (1836), which imagines Napoleon’s First French Empire emerging victorious in the French invasion of Russia in 1811 and in an invasion of England in 1814, later unifying the world under Bonaparte’s rule.
