Bonaparte, very powerful under the name of first Consul, offers peace to united, and, on their refusal, it takes the control of the war.
It organizes a new army, crosses the Alps in Large Saint-Bernard (Mall 1800), and gains over the Austrians a great Marengo victory (June 14, 1800); the Cisalpine Republic is restored; the king of Naples withdraws fight.
Moreau, which orders the army of Germany, carries to the Austrians the last blow by the victory of Hohenlinden, which opens to him the road of Vienna (December 1800).
Austria, threatened on two sides, signs the treaty of Lunéville, which formally renews the transfer of Belgium and left bank of the Rhine in France, and which recognizes the republics cisalpine, ligurienne, Swiss and Batavian (1801).
England, which does not have any more a battle field on the continent, is avenged on the Danes allied for France by bombarding Copenhagen, then, alarmed at the projects of descent of Bonaparte, it signs in its turn the treaty of Amiens, by which France covers its colonies, and Turkey covers Egypt (1802).
The sea is pacified like the continent; the French influence dominates in Europe.
A the Bonaparte interior points out the emigrants and proscribed, reopens the churches with the worship, and gives to France a new organization which confirms the Revolution partly: it makes complete the Civil code, establishes the Courses of call; improve perception of finances, creates the Bank of France, the prefectures and the sub-prefectures, the colleges, the military special School; it institutes the order of the Legion of honor.
Finally it reconciles France with the Holy See by the Legal settlement, which regulates the reports/ratios of the Church and the State (1802).
the majority of these institutions still remain.
