Over 200 years after his death, the life and times of Napoleon Bonaparte continue to fascinate and ignite passionate debate. Research conducted to mark the bicentennial of the period has resulted in fascinating new discoveries and fresh perspectives on age old questions. Yet the period 1769-1821 was about far more than the life of one man and the course of one conflict, witnessing revolutions in everything from the waging of wars, to the running of governments, and much more besides.

The aim of the conference

The second ‘War and Peace in the Age of Napoleon Conference’ aims to build upon the rich recent research, with a 2.5 day international ‘hybrid’ conference (both ‘in person’ and online). Returning after the huge success of the first event in 2019, the conference will be run by the ‘Napoleonic & Revolutionary War Graves Charity’ and held at the National Army Museum, London, from the 8th to 10th September 2022. The event has been generously sponsored by the Society for Army Historical Research, and the British Commission for Military History.

With over 50 speakers, and more than 30 hours of talks, this is one of the biggest gatherings of Napoleonic experts and enthusiasts of 2022. Whether you’re just starting out learning about the period, or have been reading and researching into it for years, there is something for all, and everyone is welcome. Online and in person ticket options are available and all talks will be recorded and released to everyone who buys tickets, so that you don’t have to worry about missing the ones which clash.
