On 6 August 1806, Napoleon becomes both the Emperor of France and the Holy Roman Emperor by the crowning of Pope Pius VII. Unlike in OTL... the Holy Roman Emperor is not abolished and Napoleon retains the title of Roman Emperor until his death in 1821.

1906 - Napoleon IV and the Bonaparte dynasty celebrate 100 years of Bonaparte rule in France.

1914 - World War I begins with the alliances of France, the UK and the CSA against the United States and the Holy Roman Empire under Kaiser Wilheim II.

1918 - The Central Powers (The United States, Austria and the Holy Roman Empire) defeat France, the United Kingdom and the Confederate States in World War I resulting in loss of territory by the French Empire and a movement to oust the French Emperor from power.

1919 - Napoleon IV dies and the French Imperial throne sits vacant in the midst of a civil war between the Imperialists and the Republicans who support turning the French Empire into a republic.

1921 - Monarchist forces win the civil war and Napoleon V is crowned the new Emperor of France.

1941 - Second World War started by France and the CSA in attempt to regain lost territory from the previous war.

1946 - The United States, Austria and the Holy Roman Empire once again defeat the Alliance of France, the United Kingdom and the Confederate States in the Second World War which results in the impeachment of the Confederate States President as well as the abdication of Napoleon V in favor of his son.
