Napoleon's army assembled near the Imperial palace of Schönbrunn in Vienna, showing Vienna in background, shortly after the decisive French victory in the Battle of Wagram (5-6 July 1809). The battle resulted in the Treaty of Schönbrunn later that year, in which Austria ceded territories and one sixth of the Austrian Empire's subjects to France.
