the congress of vienna 1814 1815
The Congress of Vienna 1814 - 1815
  • With the fall of Napoleon, Louis XVIII would back into power and would be supported by foreign troops.
  • Under British influence, the alliance of governments that allied against Napoleon would meet at the congress of Vienna (1 year before Waterloo)
  • Much of Europe went back to to the way it had been and Britain worked hard to ensure that there was a “balance of power”.
  • However, the desire for freedom would lead to new revolutions and the birth of nationalism
what is nationalism
What is Nationalism?
  • Nationalism is “a feeling of pride or love for one’s country”
  • The 19th century (1800’s) was a century of national building based on nationalism

Napoleonic Empire, 1811: France in dark blue, satellite states in light

Blue. Many of the territories occupied by Napoleon during his Empire

began to feel a new sense of nationalism. During the occupation,

Napoleon destroyed and disallowed many nation's individual cultures,

and the people of these nations greatly resented this.

Revolution Spreads
  • 1848 – 1849 Revolutions swept through Europe – people protested corrupt governments, poor working conditions, foreign rule

The European Revolutions of 1848, known in

some countries as the Spring of Nations or the

Year of Revolution, were a series of political

upheavals throughout the European continent.
