Premise

It has currently been exactly one year since the signing of the Congress of Vienna, and the definitive end of Napoleon's dream for a French Empire to rule the continent of Europe. Many in Europe believe that the Congress of Vienna would secure harmony and peace in Europe for centuries to come. Though the sands of time, and the annals of history would have to disagree with the people of Europe.
