    • The Congress of Vienna 1814-1815
    • Five “Great Powers” Meet:
      • Prussia - Frederick Willhelm III
      • Russia - Czar Alexander
      • Austria - Klemens von Metternich
      • Great Britain - Lord Castleraugh
      • France - Tallyrand
    • Klemens von Metternich
      • Influencial Austrian foreign minister
      • Distrusted democracy
      • Plan to restore Europe
    • 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
    • Europe 1815
    • Concert of Europe Alliance system Nations would help each other if revolutions broke out
    • 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!
    • 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!
    • I, Napoleon, brought a problem to Europe. I overthrew all the kings, and placed my own family members on the throne!
    • How did the Congress of Vienna and Metternich fix the problem? Legitimacy!!! The original monarchs are put back in office!
    • 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!
    • How did the Congress of Vienna and Metternich fix the problem? Containment of France! Made countries around France that were once weaker…. Stronger!
    • 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!
    • How did the Congress of Vienna and Metternich fix the problem? Balance of Power! No country in Europe could easily overpower another!
    • Thank you for playing! I hope you had a FANTASTIC time!
