To help establish peace and stability in Europe after Napoleon, a series of meetings were held in Vienna called the Congress of Vienna. Prince Metternich of Austria was the most influential there. They wanted to ensure that a Revolution and brutal war would never happen again. To contain France, the Kingdom of the Netherlands formed, the German states were loosely united, Switzerland became independent, and Genoa was added to the Kingdom of Sardinia.
Russia and Prussia agree!
Great Britain Agrees!
I, Klemens von Metternich of Austria, propose we, the Congress of Vienna, are responsible for surrounding France to prevent future agression, restore a balance of power, and restore Europe's royal families to the throne.
The Congress of Vienna was a great success for conservatives. Fearful that the Democratic reminiscences of the Revolution would spark another revolution Russia, Austria, and Prussia signed a Holy Alliance, which pledged their relations would be built on Christian principals. The Concert of Europe was also formed, which ensured nations would aid each other if revolutions broke out. This helped keep peace until 1830.
We should leave Britain and France out of the Holy Alliance because they are not absolute monarchies
We need to sign a Holy Alliance and form the Concert of Europe to ensure democracy does not rise again!
When Napoleon deposed the King of Spain, liberal Creoles, or colonists born in America, gained power. But, when the Congress of Vienna restored the king to throne, royalist peninsulares, or colonists born in Spain, took power back. So, the Creoles rebelled and took control back. Slowly, Mexico, Brazil, and many other Latin American colonies gained their independence. This marked the start of a new era.
The Creoles are gaining power and we will have our independance!
