Metternich, what do you think about the results of the French Revolution?
Prince Klemens von Metternich declared at the Congress of Vienna that he wanted to surround France with strong countries to prevent future French aggression. He also restored balance of power in Europe so France was not the strongest. Last, he wanted legitimacy to restore the royal family who was there before Napoleon to the throne.
I want to revert back because I don't like the results!
This meeting was such a success we are now in a time of peace yay!
Czar Alexander I, Francis I, and Frederick William III signed the Holy Alliance, pledging to base their foreign relations on Christian principles. Metternich devised the Concert of Europe, ensuring the nations would help each other if one broke into revolution. New political views and ideas came to Europe from the revolution, and that could not be undone.
The king should share his power!
We love King Louis XVIII
Creoles seized colonies in the Americas after Napoleon removed the King of Spain. The Congress of Vienna restored the King to his throne and tried to regain the colonies but the Creoles wanted power. The Mexicans were also angry and removed Spain’s control. Ideas from the Congress of Vienna influenced the future countries to have their own revolutions.
I just want to stay King and not get thrown in and out!
