The Congress of…Cascade?
This April, representatives from Europe’s largest imperial powers from the early nineteenth century gathered to decide the fate of Napoleon’s recently sunken French Empire.
…Or so the students of the Alzar School’s World History class reenacted to fortify their knowledge of the Congress of Vienna, an important event in the history of international relations that punctuated the Napoleon’s aggression during his conquest of Europe. Students of World History had the opportunity to do some historic role-playing, utilizing the endlessly creative combinations afforded by Alzar’s long-famous costume box to lighten the mood as they decided to limit the expansion of France, permit the confederation of Germany and renew the sovereignty of Genoa, Sardinia and the Netherlands, among others.
In attendance were:
Cardinal Ercole Consalvi, of the Papal States:
Czar Alexander I, of Russia:
Prince Klemens Wenzel von Metternich, of Austria:
Baron Johann von Wessenberg, of Austria:
Prince Karl August von Hardenberg, of Prussia:
Robert Stewart, Viscount Castlereagh, of Britain:
Charles Maurice de Talleyrand, of France:
