Our European Past: the Congress of Vienna and Us

32 Smith SquareLondon SW1P 3EU


To mark the 200th anniversary of the Congress of Vienna, Dr Philip Mansel shows how European networks of courts, courtiers and diplomats helped to run it, and to make the nineteenth century an age of cosmopolitanism as well as nationalism. Britain under the Prince Regent, Castlereagh and Wellington was at least as European as other powers.

Philip Mansel is author of Prince of Europe, a life of one of the Congress's wittiest observers, the Prince de Ligne, and of three books on cosmopolitan cities: Constantinople, City of the Word's Desire; Paris between Empires; and Levant, Splendour and Catastrophe on the Mediterranean.
