"The breakdown of the Concert of Europe was mainly caused by disagreements amongst the Powers over the issue of intervention." Discuss the validity of this statement. "The breakdown of the Concert of Europe was mainly caused by disagreements amongst the Powers over the issue of intervention." is a valid statement. In the introduction, you may make a brief outline of the essay as well. There were revolutions in many parts of Europe after 1815. Meanwhile, the Quadruple Alliance was formed to ensure peace but Britain had a different attitude towards the solution of revolutions. This, to a large extentt, caused the breakdown of the Concert of Europe in 1823. To some extent, other disagreements amongst the Powers, the death of Castlereagh and disorganization of the congresses also contribute to the breakdown. How about the attitudes of other powers? You may like to show a contrast between Britain and the Troppau Protocol. "Concert of Europe" is the term term used to dexcribe various attempts made by the major Powers in Europe after 1815 to resolve conflicts between themselves in order to prevent large-scale war.

There were further revolutions in Europe. A revolution in Spain forced the Spanish king to restore the democractic constitution of 1812. The Tsar called a congress to help the Spanish king. However, Britain opposed. Austria, however, agreed after revolutions broke out in Piedmont, Portugal and Naples because these revolutions would threatened Austrian rule. Austria, Russia, and Prussia had a congress in Troppau while Britain and France only sent observers. Another congress concering the same matter was called the following year in Libach. Austira, Russia and Prussia signed the Protocol of Troppau which widened the difference between Britain and the continental powers. In the protocol, the continental powers stated that they would exclude any revolutionary governments from European alliance and would use force to supress revolutions. The forth congress was called at Verona. The meeting was called because there was a revolt of the Greeks against the Turks, mattering the peace of Europe. Britain again did not want any intervention from the Powers. He secured a promise of reforms from the Turkish government so as to prevent Russia intervention. The congress underlined the breach between Britain and its allies of Quintuple Alliance, particularly on the question of intervention in the internal affairs of other states. Finally, in 1823, Britain withdrew from the alliance, giving a big blow to the congress system. You may like to state the years of the congresses so that they stand out in the paragraph. ...read more.
