Nationalism: Revolution in France & Latin America


Revolution of 1848

After the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo the Congress of Vienna restored Louis XVIII to the French throne. While technically a constitutional monarch most state power rested with Louis which was a condition that would stay permanent. Throughout the 19th century France would bounce from some form of monarchy and a republic. The Revolution of 1848 set the stage for another Napoleon and spread revolutions across Europe.
