1763-1775: Many of the causes that led to the American Revolution remain, except for the Quebec Act, obviously. The British Royal Proclamation of 1763, No taxation without representation, Sugar Act, Currency Act, Quartering Act, Stamp Act of 1765, Townshend Act 1767 and Boston Massacre 1770, and the Tea Act 1773 all further inflame the sense of growing rebellion in the Colonies, in spite of the French presence to the north.

Upon the death of his parents, he is proclaimed King Louis XVII and is recognized as the rightful ruler of France.

1803-1818: A series of conflicts later known as the Napoleonic Wars engulfs Europe.
In the War of the Sixth Coalition, France allied with Russia, Napoleonic Italy, Warsaw, Naples, Holland, Confederation of the Rhine, Swiss Confederation , Austria, Prussia and the forces of the Serbian uprising to fight against the Coalition of Britain, Sicily, Spain, Portugal, Sweden and the Ottoman Empire. The war lasted from 1811-1814 resulting in a victory for Napoleon and his allies, and the establishment of new puppet states in the Balkans.
Napoleon named his brother in law, Camillo Borghese as the King of Wallachia, other new states created are the Kingdom of Serbia, Kingdom of Rumelia, Principality of Bulgaria and the Republic of the Hellenes. Napoleon and his forces were unable to capture Constantinople, Thessalonki or Adrianople. In the east, Russia took possession of the Caucasian Mountains and created its own puppet states in the form of the Kingdom of Georgia and Kingdom of Armenia.
1817: Three years later the Continental System had worn Napoleon's allies thin and Russia opened trade with the British. Angered Napoleon declared war on Russia and led a mighty invasion force of half a million men into Russia. It would prove a disaster, Napoleon himself died of pneumonia in 1817, his young son was proclaimed Napoleon II in Paris. Without his leadership the war turned decidedly against France, the Republic of the Hellenes, Prussia, Austria, the Ottoman Empire, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and French Royalists joined Britain and Russia in the War of the Seventh Coalition, resulting in the overthrow of the Bonapartist Regime and the restoration of the Bourbons.

The Ottoman Empire was restored except for the Kingdom of Serbia and the Republic of the Hellenes, both newly created states with reduced borders. Britain acquires land east of the Brazos River from Spain in North America, which is then attached to British Louisiana. Other than these changes, the Congress of Vienna is much the same.
Many Bonapartists including Napoleon II flees to the Kingdom of Naples where they are offered sanctuary. Due to his part in the Napoleonic Wars Pope Clement XV (Pope Pius VII dies in 1817) excommunicates the Kingdom of Naples as long as it is ruled by the Murat dynasty.
