The four great powers thought through the reforms that should be applied to all the nations that were altered during the reign of Bonaparte. After the Congress of Vienna, the kingdom of Netherlands appeared, Germany remained almost unchanged, and the Holy Roman Empire was never brought back to existence. The republic was strongly rejected all over Europe. The legitimate monarchs took over the rule.
The problem appeared as the Congress got to the point of settling the Eastern Europe. The countries were divided among the different nations and none of the rulers was willing to share the land with any other state. For example, Tsar Alexander claimed Poland as his property. However, Prussia and Austria possessed parts of Poland as well. Prussia was willing to trade its share off, but Austria was stubbornly holding onto its part of Poland. A secret treaty was made between France, Britain, and Austria. After the treaty, Alexander agreed to have his share of Poland and Prussia received parts of Saxony.
All the results of the Congress of Vienna were quite significant because they contributed to the history of Europe. The settlements of the Congress changed maps and territories of certain countries. The main goal of the Congress was to prevent any other leader from ever dominating the whole Europe. This goal was achieved since Napoleon was the last to ever conquer that many nations.
