From the French Revolution to the Age of Napoleon to the Revolutions of 1848, Europe was in constant political turmoil for the first half of the 19th century.  Inspired by revolutionary movements in France and in the New World, Europeans began to revolt and establish new political entities.  Belgium broke away from the Netherlands in 1831; Greece broke away from the Ottoman Empire in 1832, France underwent yet another revolution in 1830 which once again deposed the monarchy; Poland attempted a revolt but was crushed by Russia, Austria attempted to alter its government, but the movement was also crushed;  Most notably, the failure of Austria and what are now the Balkans to reform led to one of the principle catalysts for the First World War.
