Moonlight Masquerade is set during the Napoleonic Wars. These lasted from 1803 to 1815. Although there are mentions of sea battles between France and Great Britain in the novel, the major topic of conversation is Napoleon’s disastrous Russian campaign. The biggest victory by the British – the final defeat of Napoleon and his army at the Battle of Waterloo – is yet to take place.
I was brought up knowing about Napoleon. We’re all fans of history in my family and my father considers the Emperor to be one of his historical heroes. He goes to the Waterloo battle site in Belgium every year. He has books and books on the man and his actions. And, somewhere in my parents’ photograph collections, there is a photo of a 4 year old me standing by Napoleon’s tomb in Les Invalides in Paris. We were on a family vacation and my father insisted on a visit.
