As Napoleons downfall and Frances defeat become inevitable, the hard work and hard partying of the great diplomats and statesmen of Europe reached a fever pitch. In a whirl of balls and banquets the shape of Europe for the next 100 years would be decided.

So much hung in the balance, but the great men of the time seemed to be more interested in the parties and the women to notice. Would there be a lasting peace, and a better world for all? Or would the old order simply be putting a lid on a pressure cooker…..

Join me as we establish the shape of the Europe after Napoleon, and see the stage being set that the Victorians would inherit a few years later.

Hi, Chris! Loving your podcast so far and I wait anxiously for future episodes. However, to be honest, I was a bit disappointed with this one. I felt like you spent too much time explaining the personalities and worldviews of the players involved rather than the actual decisions they made and the consequences thereof. Nevertheless, this podcast has been otherwise awesome; keep it up!

    Hi. Thanks for getting in touch. I am really glad you are enjoying the show. Yes I admit I get a bit side tracked by people sometimes, I find them the key to history but a nudge sometimes is always good. I hope you enjoy the next few episodes.
