Historia de dos ciudades: Aquisgran y Colonia en el imperio napoleonico

Translated title of the contribution: A Tale of Two Cities: Aachen & Cologne in Napoleonic Europe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Recent work on the Napoleonic Empire has been informed by the concept of 'inner' and 'outer' zones developed by Michael Broers. According to this model, the German-speaking Rhineland was part of the 'inner' zone, an area characterised by its essential adherence to the Empire. This chapter engages with this concept through an examination Aachen and Cologne, and concludes that very conflicting responses to the Napoleonic Empire characterised the experience of these tywo Rhenish cities.
