in 1815 to regulate European politics affected by the fall of Napoleon
. The Alliance met together at the Congress of Vienna in 1815 to discuss territorial disputes risen by the Napoleonic Wars. Prince Klemens von Metternich
acted as the president of Congress and cemented his position as a European statesman.
