Revolutionary Outbursts in Belgium, Poland, and Italy

1830 - 1831

Nationalism played a key role in the revolt in the Netherlands. The congress of Vienna added the Austrian Netherlands to the Dutch Republic. Mainly all the revolts was over powers of the country and dominance between competition between countries.

Reform in Great Britian (Reform Act)

1830 - 1832

The Act granted seats in the House of Commons to large cities that had sprung up during the Industrial Revolution, and took away seats from the "rotten boroughs"—those with very small populations. The Act also increased the number of individuals entitled to vote, increasing the size of the electorate from about 400,000 to 650,000, and allowing a total of one out of six adult males to vote, in a population of some 14 million.

French Revolutions


Rapid expansion of the French industry helped industrial working class grow in the process. Government troops were sent to destroy and stop the revolts or working class revolts. There was an alliance between workers and radical advocates of the republic. Repression against the revolts and censorship on the press to stop propaganda was the results.

The July Revolution In Paris

July 1830

The revolution of July 1830 created a constitutional monarchy. Soldiers of the Empire, as well as middle-class citizens joined the rebels who wanted a republic.

Italian State Revolts


The major victory of Metternich and (Habsburg Austrian Emperor) Francis 1 at the Congress of Vienna (held in 1815 after Napoleon Bonaparte was seen to have been defeated) was to establish Austrian hegemony in the Italian peninsula. This was secured principally through the re-acquisition of Lombardy and Venetia, both of which were notably populous and fertile regions. The Grand Ducal and Ducal thrones of such smaller historic Italian states as Modena, Parma and Tuscany were awarded to junior branches of the House of Habsburg.
The territories of another historic Italian state - the Republic of Genoa - were entrusted to the sovereignty of the Kingdom of Sardinia-Piedmont.
Whilst Metternich had sought to formalize the construction of an "Italian Federation" this was blocked by the King of Sardinia-Piedmont and the Papacy's reluctance to accept an associated Habsburg presidency of the federation.

Revolution in Central Europe


Agricultural depression played an massive role in the revolution.
