    The conversion of Alexander, therefore, brought great relief to Metternich. However, Britain did non wish to step in in internal differences and alternatively pursed a less reactionist policy. Englishmen did not in fact revolt against Charles I "because he failed to protect the Protestant German princes on whom their own liberties depended" — the primary issues were ones of domestic religious conflict. England failed to get any compensation for these. There was Spanish Revolt at the time.

    Therefore the war can be seen to hold been the decision of the concert, but was by no means the exclusive cause of prostration. Faced with the danger of a resurgent France restoring its Italian position by means of a family compact and an appeal to constitutionalism, he managed to isolate France and to reduce her to impotence. Our influence, if it is to be maintained abroad, must be secure in the sources of strength at home; and the sources of that strength are in the sympathy between the people and the government; in the union of the public sentiment with the public counsels; in the reciprocal confidence and co-operation of the House of Commons and the Crown. Again inGreat Britain opposed the intervention of France in Spain and despite her protests France had her way and she did intervene in Spain.

    Due to the diversified notions of how to obtain their goals, disagreements and increasing difference soon arose between them and further hampered the cooperation. A host of factors can explain the final failure of the Concert of Europe in France will forget; but it will be with a view to hastening after our example as regards South America. It was the application of this principle which enabled Austria to suppress revolts in Naples and Piedmont in

The collapse of the concert of Europe

The Congress which settled the independence of Belgium collapse of the concert of Europe book a good example of how Great Powers can meet without embarrassment and effect lasting good because each respected the institutions and difficulties of the other.

Efficaciously, this merely acted to give the Concert system with the war holding the highest casualty rate of any European struggle between the Congress of Vienna in andthe Outbreak of World War One, as more than Russians, 95 Gallic and 22 English lost their lives during the struggle. However, such a state of affairs could not last long and the matters were precipitated by the intervention collapse of the concert of Europe book France in Spain.

Some examples during the Concert of Europe could certainly demonstrate it. The reason behind was that Russia wanted to extend his influence to the Balkans.

Peace would have been secured in Europe at the price of liberty and independence. However, the Concert of Europe broke up in after holding four conferences at Aix-la-Chapelle inat Troppau inat Laibach inand at Verona in It was also stated that the Concert of Europe was a product of the Napoleonic Wars and its object was to collapse of the concert of Europe book against a common enemy-France.

As regards the question of the rebellious colonies of Spain in South America, there was going on a lot of trade between England and those colonies from the time of the French Revolution. Critically, though, and one potential lesson, is that the Concert ceased to be effective when two of the Great Powers believed that they could no longer utilise its mechanisms to resolve their differences.

The great powers were now in a system of meeting wherever a problem arose. The Greeks revolted against Turkey and thus the Greek question came up for consideration before the Congress of Verona.

The rise of Nationalism in Europe and the instability caused by the widespread eruption of revolution caused a strong divide amongst states.

Why, then, in circumstances where the Great Powers had sought to avoid conflict at all costs, did the Crimean War break out? Britain and France did not send their representatives because they opposed the idea of intervention. True, Russian naval power was nowhere near so strong as to pose such a threat, but it would be easier to squash Russian naval plans when they were still embryonic.

Furthermore, the Powers of the Alliance would also be bound to peacefully or by means of war bring the excluded State back into the Alliance. Different interpretations of how peace could be kept among them soon led to the collapse of the Concert of Europe.

All of this was guaranteed by a perpetual alliance of the Four Powers. The principle of joint intervention, generally accepted in reference to the ex-enemy State of France became an excuse for a universal meddlesomeness that chimed with the real interests neither of Metternich nor of Britain.

The failure of Britain's politicians to control their generals led to the collapse of the peacekeeping arrangements of the 'Concert of Europe' - a sort of early UN Security Council. From the above cases, we can see that countries did not merely want to suppress the new ideas and to maintain the balance of power.

A host of factors can explain the final failure of the Concert of Europe in Such thoughts of guaranteeing self-centered ideas could then induce difference between countries and even the collapse of the Concert of Europe.

The Congress also passed the famous Protocol of Troppau which justified the intervention of one State in the internal affairs of other States. Thus, the Greek Revolution between and ; the Belgian Revolution that began in ; and the Italian Revolution ofwere all settled without Great Power conflicts.

This meant that the first conference in dealt with remaining issues of the French wars, but after that instead of meeting at "fixed periods" the meetings were arranged on an ad hoc basis, to address specific threats, such as those posed by revolutionsfor which the treaty was not drafted.

Britain and France stopped Russia from becoming too strong by interfering in the incident lest he might become a threat to their countries and even the whole Europe.

Great Britain was opposed to such a policy and counteracted the new move of the other Powers. Hence, Britain opposed the intervention mainly due to her self-concern of trading.The Concert of Europe: European Diplomacy in the 19th Century Seminar Bibliography Langhorne, Richard Tristan Bailey, The Collapse of the Concert of Europe: International Politics, (New York: St Martin's Press, ) Reference Books Palmer.
