The Congress of Vienna and the Age of Revolutions
Deadline, 2/11, 120 points
How did Europe and the Atlantic world change after the fall of Napoleon?
What happened around the Atlantic after the great ideals of the Congress of Vienna?
The Congress of Vienna convened as Napoleon was falling from power. The big question was how to create stability in Europe after so much had been shattered by the Napoleonic Wars. Attendees to the Congress believed the real key to stability was to strengthen the monarchies and restrict the power of France.
Just what happened in the wake of the Congress was something no one imagined.
Students will identify and explain the implications of their chosen questions.
Select two of the following questions. One must be from questions 1 - 4, and one must be from questions 5 - 7. Write a two or three paragraph essay in response to each of the questions you choose. Make your answers clear, concise, and contextual. Use specific examples.
