Lee Grixit asks:
Napoleon III somehow manages to defeat Prussia. And is somehow dissuaded from trying to expand the boundaries of France. What's next?
Does he maintain his support for poor dumb Maximilian? Does he fund some flashy projects? Does he bring the folks who in ttl created the Commune into the mainstream?
