I agree with the terms and conditions, especially point 10 (only private use, no transmission to third party) and accept that my order cannot be revoked.


As is well known, the Congress of Vienna brought to an end the era that the French Revolution and the French Empire (1789-1815) had established, constituting an attempt to "shape" a "new" order, the reorganisation of Europe and the restoration of the old establishment.

It marked the end of an era and the beginning of a new state of affairs with a conservative orientation, anachronistic tendencies, opposed to any potential rebellion and revolution. The period that followed was characterised by a fear on the part of the powerful to overturn the new equilibria that had been created. It was in this climate that the revolution by the subjugated Greeks of the Ottoman Empire broke out in 1821. This disrupted the new status quo and the decisions of the Congress directly influenced Greek concerns, as we will discuss below.

The Congress of Vienna became associated with an emblematic figure of modern Hellenism, who played a major role in the first three decades of the 19th century: Count Ioannis Antonios (John) Capodistrias (Corfu, 1776 - Nauplion 1831), one of the most distinguished politicians and diplomats of Europe (Petrides, 1976).
