The Battle of Leipzig or Battle of the Nations (German: Völkerschlacht, French: Bataille des Nations) was fought 16–19 October 1813 by the coalition armies of Russia, Prussia, Austria, and Sweden led by the Russian Tsar Alexander I against the French army of Napoleon I, Emperor of the French, at Leipzig, Saxony. Napoleon’s army also contained Polish and Italian troops as well as Germans from the Confederation of the Rhine. The battle marked the culmination of the autumn campaign of 1813 during the German campaign and involved over 600,000 soldiers, making it the largest battle in Europe prior to World War I.
