What is the Congress of Vienna?
The Congress of Vienna took place in order to provide a long-term peace plan for Europe in the wake of the French Revolution and Napoleonic Wars. Signed nine days before Napoleon’s final defeat at Waterloo, it caused France to lose most of its recent territorial gains, where Prussia, Austria, and Russia all gained territory. It was meant to seen as a balance between the main European powers, in order to remain at peace. While it did suppress many republican movements in Europe, it was generally seen as successful in its aim in creating long-term stability and peace in much of mid-19th century Europe, as their work prevented a wide-scale European war until 1914.
