Invasion of Portugal
Portugal refused to participate in Napoleon's continental system that was designed to deny food and other products produced in the continent to Great Britain. Napleon then sent his Andoche Junot with an army to conquer Portugal. In November he succeeded in occupying Lisbon forcing the royal family to flee to Brazil where they set up a government in exile.
