Armchair General has partnered with The Map as History, a company that produces outstanding animated maps with accompanying narration. Each month, a link to one of their animated maps will be featured on the ACG site.

This month’s map shows how national boundaries were redrawn in Europe by the Congress of Vienna at the end of the Napoleonic Wars and the unrest that resulted in the years to come.

Two results that developed in part because of the decisions made at the Conference of Vienna were the Hungarian Revolution and the war between Prussia and Austria in 1866 that led to the decisive battle at Koniggratz.
