The War of the Seventh Coalition, also known as the War of Liberation (French: Guerre de Libération) in France (not to be confused with the Wars of Liberation (German: Befreiungskriege) in Germany), was the seventh and final of the Napoleonic Wars, fought in the spring, summer, and early autumn of 1815. The conflict, started when Napoléon Bonaparte made his return to France from exile and once again announced himself Emperor, spanned across Europe and involved hundreds of thousands of soldiers on both sides. Napoléon's shattering victories at the battles of Waterloo, Diepholz, and Fürth solidified both his position as the greatest living general and the French Empire as the most powerful state in Europe. The Napoleonic Age is considered to have begun with the signing of the Treaty of Prague, which ended the war.
