I am updating my wargame maps of the Napoleonic period and am trying to determine the national borders. I have found a lot of information about present day borders, and can use this for the main countries such as Spain and France. But cannot find much useful information about the Confederation of the Rhine.

I have found maps which show the borders, but there is insufficient detail to transfer them to a modern map.

Any suggestions would be very welcome

There are some maps there. I assume you have found these, as copies are also on the english page. As the rivers have not shifted, what exactly do you lack to transfer these borders upon a modern map?

I propose to use "Rheinbund" and "Karte" looking for large pictures if you need more detailed maps. You will probably yield more results then using the English or French terms in this case.

Thanks very much for that link. I have seen something similar, but not been able to enlarge the maps as I can with this one. The rivers will be very useful to transfer to my current maps.

Is there an English translation for that page?

Yes. Just scroll down the page and click on the "English" link on the left side.
