- THE CONGRESS OF VIENNE. Its main objective is to reorganize Europe’s political map, altered by Napoleon. The more influential nations in the Congress were Austria, Prussia, Russia and England. Other countries, like Spain, Sweden and Portugal had less influence (see Congress of Vienne).
Efforts were made to restore the monarchies which had been destituting during the French Revolution. But the liberals claimed for new written Constitutions, and the nacionalists defended the independence of European countries.
- THE HOLY ALLIANCE. Its main objective is to prevent revolutionary attempts, provoked by liberals and nacionalists, and even to fight against uprising and riots. An army to help Ferdinand VII to restore the absolute monarchy in Spain, which was deposed in the Riego revolution, was sended from the Congress of Verona.
