(R30)European Empires


The spread of nationalism
The Spread of Nationalism

The industrial revolution combined with the expansion of European colonial/imperial possessions made many European countries very wealthy.

You could say that European leaders got “big-headed.”


The spread of nationalism1
The Spread of Nationalism

During the 1800’s nationalism was sweeping through Europe.

Nationalism is the love of one’s country more than the love of one’s native region or state.

Nationalism would influence the actions of many European people and leaders between the mid-1800’s & mid-1900’s.


The spread of nationalism2
The Spread of Nationalism

One of the reasons that nationalism became so widespread in Europe during this time was because many of the nations of Europe had adopted some form of democratic government.

For the first time, many Europeans were able to participate in the governance of their country.

This made people proud to be a citizen of their nation.


Changing governments
Changing Governments

For centuries, Absolutemonarchs (kings & queens) had unlimited power in the countries they ruled.

Taking the example of the American Revolution, citizens in many different European countries began to demand the right to vote and wanted limited governments.


Constitutional monarchies
Constitutional Monarchies

Many of the countries of Europe didn’t want to ditch their kings and queens all together, but merely to limit their power.

Constitutionalmonarchies were established, in which a country had a monarch, but also had an elected body to make and enforce laws.

The UK is still a constitutional monarchy.


European empires 1914
European Empires (1914)

By 1914, many western European countries-including France, Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany, & Belgium had many colonies in Asia, Africa, & the Americas.


Defending empires
Defending Empires

These colonies were very important to the European countries that ruled them.

They were a source of great wealth and status.

This system was called “colonialism.”

Defending Empires

The colonial powers of Europe depended heavily on their colonies for money.

As a result, they built up their armies and navies to defend their possessions from other European powers.

They were also used to crush pesky rebellions.


Formula for disaster
Formula for Disaster

Europe around 1900:

Everybody thinks they’re the best (nationalism)

Everybody has huge armies & navies (colonial defense)

Alliance systems
Alliance Systems

Many of the nations of Europe decided to sign military alliances with one another to prevent outsiders from declaring war.

For example:

“I have an alliance with France….so if you want to fight me, you’ll have to fight France as well.”

This was meant to discourage armed conflict in Europe & create peace.

This “web” of alliances posed one simple problem:

If any of those nations got into a war, all the rest would be pulled in.
