What message is this political cartoon from 1805 conveying in regards to Napoleon and William Pitt (the Younger), Prime Minister of Great Britain?
Pitt and Napoleon were conspiring to dominate world politics.
Governments around the world viewed the Great Britain more favorably than they did France under Napoleon.
Napoleon was being permitted to take over continental Europe as long as he didn’t interfere with British advances elsewhere due to a nonaggression pact.
Napoleon, despite his land army successes in continental Europe, could not accomplish much at sea which is where the British Navy was most successful.
The British government was unconcerned with Napoleon’s advances in Europe and interacted with Napoleon’s forces very little.
