Metternich Agreement

Written By: Chris - Apr• 10•21

These parties had not been part of the Chaumont Agreement, but had acceded to the Treaty of Paris (1814): 9 Metternich later remarked that he had almost forgotten the French Revolution in the early 1790s, most of his time being consumed in the laboratory. “I was happy in this scientific circle,” he writes, “and I let the revolution rage and rejoice, without a call to me to fight it” (MM, 1:23). His only political act at that time was the publication, in 1794, of a brief anonymous pamphlet – under the revealing pseudonym of a friend of world peace – asking voters of the states of West Germany to defend their country in the event of a French attack (MM, 1:340-47). For the revolution, see Srbik, , Metternich, 1:65-96Google Scholar; Kraehe, , Deutsche Politik, 1: 10-18Google Scholar; MM, 1:4-17. For his views and disagreements with Burke and his supporters, see Kissinger, Henry A., A World Restored: Metternich, Castlereagh, and the Problems of Peace, 1815-1822 (Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1957), p. 193-4Google Scholar; NP, 3:451. Disagreements between the powers over the fate of the Kingdom of Saxony and the Duchy of Poland led to the so-called Polish-Saxon crisis. [2] Prussia and Russia presented a common plan to improve their position: Austria and Prussia would renounce all claims on Polish territory, with a new state under the influence of Russia. In return, Prussia would receive most of Saxony. [3] Britain, Prussia, Russia and Austria renewed their commitment to prevent any restoration of Bonapartist power and agreed to meet regularly at conferences to discuss their common interests. This period includes the time of the Holy Alliance, a military agreement. The Concert of Europe was the political framework that emanated from the Alliance of Four in November 1815.

The three signatories agreed to invite Bavaria, Hanover and the Netherlands if necessary, as well as Hesse and Sardinia. This proved unnecessary in this case, as the news of the agreement forced Russia and Prussia to an agreement. [5] Its provisions required France, Great Britain and Austria to help each other within six weeks of each attack and to provide a common army of 120,000 infantry and 30,000 cavalry. With its small standing army, Britain could deliver instead foreign troops or subsidize each deficit of $20 per fanciful or $30 per rider per year. All parties agreed not to conclude a separate peace treaty.
