What if Napoleon was killed in battle?

Depending on the point in the Napoleonic Wars, do you think France would've went on without Napoleon's Tactical Genius?

I think France already threw the "old way" into turmoil with the revolution and "the terror", so no matter what the damage was done for Europe's monarchs.

As far as French ambitions go, I think that the death of Napoleon keeps France realistic about what it can and cannot do and there are no invasions, but instead defensive wars to keep the government in place.

Question: when Napoleon is killed in this scenario, are his reforms started, in place, or neither?

In place.

In that case, my original response is the same.

I'd say it might actually stabilize or get much worse, The Marshalls would either take over or have a regent over Napoleon II, or the bourbons would try to return and end with a worse reign of terror scene, To be honest we don't really know/
