answers Question 1

Most of the national monarchies had their thrones taken by the armies of Napoleon Bonaparte and handed over to trusted allies. Formerly part of the Napoleonic Empire, these conquered regions had their territorial limits completely redrawn by the interests of the French Emperor.

question 2

The first guiding principle of the Congress of Vienna was that of legitimacy, which advocated the restoration of the old monarchies that existed before the Napoleonic invasions. In addition to this, the members of the Congress defended the principle of European balance, which sponsored the reintegration of the old territorial limits in force before the Napoleonic Era and the consensual division of colonial domains between the European powers.

question 3

Prussia, Russia, Austria and England were the most active and important nations during the Congress of Vienna. This position was achieved by the fact that these nations played the main role in the conflicts that determined the victory against the forces of the Napoleonic Army.

question 4

The Holy Alliance was an agreement involving the military cooperation of the Russian, Prussian, and Austrian monarchies. The fundamental objective of this agreement was to prevent the outbreak of other liberal movements across Europe and the fight against the independence struggles established in the American continent.

question 5

Letter C. Having an anti-liberal character, the Congress of Vienna fundamentally defended the restoration of the political, economic and social scenario that prevailed in Europe before the French Revolution. In this way, the members of this important meeting supported the reintegration of national monarchies, the recovery of old territorial limits and the authority of metropolitan nations over their colonies.
