United States in infobox[edit]

Shouldn't the United States be listed as a (non-client) French ally, since the War of 1812 is often interpreted to be an arm of the Napoleonic Wars? pbp 15:35, 30 May 2018 (UTC)

- I am not sure exactly why this isn't counted. At one point, I remember clearly seeing US marked as co-belligerent in the war due to the War of 1812 however I am willing to argue this was removed because the US was drawn in a war that had nothing to do with French interest other than having a same enemy. However I agree that US should be counted as the US is drawn into a war with the same enemy as a belligerent involved in this war. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 2601:601:9300:FC0:C8C8:63CB:3D50:A0FE (talk) 09:56, 29 October 2020 (UTC)

the edition done by Sr L[edit]

I know that this discussion should be held earlier, but it is not that late. Let's talk about his edition. What do you think about adding other countries such as Arabia and Ottoman's vassal countries? He said that he did it because "Barbary Wars" are part of Napoleonic Wars, but is there any reliable source about that? 아이린스카 (talk) 07:17, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Disentangling War of the Fifth Coaltion / Peninsular War[edit]

The chapter on the War of the Fifth Coaltion contains a narrative of the Peninsular War (the only one in this article). Obviously, the Peninsular War was amongst the causes of the Fifth Coalition, but it started earlier and ended only with the end of the War of the Sixth Coalition. Thus, both wars should have seperate chapters. The one on the Peninsular war should state that it started in 1807/08 and then ran on continuously until 1814, sometimes merging with the Coalition Wars. The chapter on the Fifth Coalition should just state that it formed against the backdrop of the Peninsular War. Coca-Coela (talk) 17:44, 4 August 2020 (UTC)
