The Effects of the Revolutions
Packet, Deadline January 27, or TBA, 80 points
How did the revolutions sweeping Europe affect nationalism and the arts?
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.
