Transcript

  • 1. The Congress of Vienna 1814-1815
  • 2. Five “Great Powers” Meet:
    • Prussia - Frederick Willhelm III
    • Russia - Czar Alexander
    • Austria - Klemens von Metternich
    • Great Britain - Lord Castleraugh
    • France - Tallyrand
  • 3. Klemens von Metternich
    • Influencial Austrian foreign minister
    • Distrusted democracy
    • Plan to restore Europe
  • 4. Metternich’s 3 Goals
    • Contain France
      • surround with stronger countries
    • Balance of Power
      • weaken France, but not too severely
      • no one country too powerful
    • Legitimacy
      • former monarchs restored
  • 5. Europe 1815
  • 6. Concert of Europe Alliance system Nations would help each other if revolutions broke out
  • 7. Hello there! Now that you know all about the three goals that Metternich had at the Congress of Vienna, we are going to play a game!
  • 8. I will tell you a problem in Europe under Napoleon, and you can tell me how Metternich helped solve the problem! Let’s get started kids!
  • 9. I, Napoleon, brought a problem to Europe. I overthrew all the kings, and placed my own family members on the throne!
  • 10. How did the Congress of Vienna and Metternich fix the problem? Legitimacy!!! The original monarchs are put back in office!
  • 11. I also made another mistake. I was very power-hungry and my fellow French citizens had strong feelings of Nationalism. Many surrounding countries saw this as a threat!
  • 12. How did the Congress of Vienna and Metternich fix the problem? Containment of France! Made countries around France that were once weaker…. Stronger!
  • 13. Another problem of mine was that France was looked at as a threat to other countries. They were always afraid I would go and conquer them, and when I did, I had ALL the power!
  • 14. How did the Congress of Vienna and Metternich fix the problem? Balance of Power! No country in Europe could easily overpower another!
  • 15. Thank you for playing! I hope you had a FANTASTIC time!
