San Marino: don't move! He can't see us if we don't move!
Cyowari's avatar
If i remember correctly the french admired the long republican tradition of San Marino and left it more or less alone. 
Not too sure what later happened, i think it was also occupied, but not really incorporated into Italy or another state
TheFlagandAnthemGuy's avatar
Actually, I was born there, I can pretty tell it's still there
Cyowari's avatar
No, of course its still there, i know. I meant what happened under Napoleon and not that vanished completely

The beginning of Napoléon's mad expansion of french borders. 
Cyowari's avatar
Yep, exactly. It gets really weird in the next few years.
Areat's avatar
I still have no idea what he was thinking. Do we know what was his endgame with these Illiryan provinces and the whole mess in Italy?
Cyowari's avatar
I've read that his whole intent was to secure France and its borders.
I'd say that he just didn't get to a final steady point were the last expansion could be stabilized.
Areat's avatar
Including millions of non french speaking people conquered by force was the exact opposite of securing and stabilising the country, in my opinion.

Even if Napoléon has succeeded, the new frznch Empire would have ended up akin to Austria Hungary in the early 1900 : a "prison of nationalities" standing on a baril of powder.

I get what you mean - but i think you mistunderstand something there. I wasn't saying that it was a good thing or idea
and you asked what could have been his plan and now you're including you're own opinion in answer, please don't do this. 

And what could have happened is highly speculative and its just one point of view and possibility.
