The story takes place in France, Italy, and the islands in the Mediterranean during the historical events between 1815 and 1839: the era of the Bourbon Restoration through the reign of Louis-Philippe of France (1773–1850). It begins just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile in 1815).
