The Bee and the Eaglebrings together a team of international specialists to present original findings on six key themes of Empire: political cultures, war and military institutions, monarchy, nationalism and identity, and everyday experience. With a comparative approach, it begins in 1806 at the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire, and its replacement by a French-sponsored new political order.
