The Congress of Vienna was a diplomatic conference held in 1814-1815 to redraw the political map of Europe in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars. The Congress was attended by representatives of the major European powers, as well as by smaller states and members of the German Confederation. After several months of negotiations, the Congress produced the Treaty of Vienna, which confirmed many of the territorial changes that had been made during the Napoleonic Wars.
