Back in Vienna, in mid-December, he heard of the death of Tsar Alexander with mixed feelings. Around the same time, he learnt that the Duchess of Sagan was courting the Tsar. He accompanied his sovereign for a final meeting with Napoleon at Dresden in May 1812 before Napoleon embarked upon the French invasion of Russia. This would be the topic of mediation with the Ottomans. In the ensuing diplomatic reshuffle Metternich was appointed ambassador to the Kingdom of Prussia, being notified of this in February 1803 and taking his position in November of that year. The most pressing issue was Hungary, where Metternich remained reluctant to support the centrist (but still nationalist) Széchenyi.

His supporters pointed out that he presided over the "Age of Metternich" when international diplomacy helped prevent major wars in Europe. [73] Instead, Metternich met with Nesselrode as planned and, while the Russian rejected his plan to restore the old Alliance, the pair agreed on the Chiffon of Karlsbad: that panic was needless unless the new government showed territorial ambitions in Europe. [22] Soon after, Napoleon refused Metternich's attendance at the Congress of Erfurt; Metternich was later glad to hear from Talleyrand that Napoleon's attempts at the Congress to get Russia to invade Austria had proved unsuccessful. Now 53, Metternich chose to send Archduke Ferdinand to establish the first contact with Nicholas.

[41] In these, the representatives agreed on how the Congress would operate and, to Metternich's delight, named his own aide Friedrich Gentz secretary to the negotiations of the "Big Six" (the Big Four plus France and Spain). [14] In Dresden Metternich also made a number of important contacts including Friedrich Gentz,[15] a publicist who would serve Metternich as both confidant and critic for the next thirty years.

[48] The arrangement was similarly popular with most German representatives. In November 1828 his mother died, and in January 1829 Antoinette died, five days after giving birth to their son, Richard von Metternich. Moreover, by November his betrothal to 25-year-old Countess Melanie Zichy-Ferraris, who came from a Magyar family the Metternichs had long known, was agreed upon. Though he publicly criticised it for being too harsh on Turkey, privately he was satisfied with its leniency and promise of Greek autonomy, making it a buffer against Russian expansion rather than a Russian satellite state.

His mother … [23] In late 1808 Metternich was recalled to Vienna for five weeks of meetings about the possibility of Austria invading France while Napoleon was on campaign in Spain. Metternich's support for other nationalities was patchy since he only opposed those that threatened the unity of the Empire. There were no major challenges to the regime from outside.

[53] He had arranged in advance for newspapers to cover the first peacetime congress of its kind. [75] Mostly, Metternich was annoyed by his insistence that under the 1815 agreements Britain had the right to oppose Austria's tightening of university controls in Germany, as Metternich had done again in 1832. His hesitancy is "a sad commentary on his declining powers of political presence". [12] The marriage was arranged by Metternich's mother and introduced him to Viennese society. [82] He was described by a Saxon diplomat as, in the words of biographer Musulin, "having shrunk to a shadow of his former self".[83].

Maria Emilia Stephania (22 March 1836 – 12 June 1836). [89], Particularly during the remainder of the nineteenth century, Metternich was heavily criticised, decried as the man who prevented Austria and the rest of central Europe from "developing along normal liberal and constitutional lines". Metternich was eventually reunited with his family in Austria in the middle of July 1814, having stopped for a week in France to soothe fears surrounding Napoleon's wife Marie Louise, now the Duchess of Parma. In the summers he worked with his father, who had been appointed plenipotentiary and effective ruler of the Austrian Netherlands. To this end he won an early victory as an Austrian general, the Prince of Schwarzenberg, was confirmed supreme commander of the Coalition forces rather than Tsar Alexander I. Karol J.

[60] As a result, when similar revolts broke out in Piedmont in the middle of March, Metternich had the Tsar at hand, who agreed to send 90,000 men to the frontier in a show of solidarity. The Austrian Foreign Minister accepted this with "surprising resilience". He returned to Vienna a month later, still worried by the "chaos in London and Paris" and his declining ability to prevent it. A traditional conservative, Metternich was keen to maintain the balance of power, in particular by resisting Russian territorial ambitions in Central Europe and lands belonging to the Ottoman Empire.

[37] Metternich and Castlereagh formed a good working relationship and then met with Alexander at Langres. After a customary morning, Metternich was called to meet with Archduke Ludwig soon after midday. More modern critiques like that of A. J. P.

[7] Metternich was delighted when Frankfurt was retaken in early November and, in particular, by the deference the Tsar showed Francis at a ceremony organised there by Metternich. Metternich, of the opinion that France should not be dismembered, was happy with the result:[49] France lost only a little land along its eastern borders, seven hundred million French francs, and the artworks it had plundered. [52][nb 5], Metternich's primary focus remained on preserving unity among the Great Powers of Europe and hence his own power as mediator. Die Igelgruppe der katholischen Kita St. Ägidius Obertiefenbach schmückte den Weihnachtsbaum an der Wallfahrtskapelle Beselich. [51] The uncharacteristic gap between the views of Metternich and his emperor was eased only by the active compromise of proposals. Despite the widespread opinion that Ferdinand was a "ghost of a monarch", Metternich valued legitimacy highly and worked to keep the government running. [31][32], Nevertheless, the Allies were not faring well, and although a statement of general war aims that included many nods to Austria was secured from Russia, Britain remained distrustful and generally unwilling to give up the military initiative she had fought 20 years to establish. The new Pope Pius IX was gaining a reputation as a liberal nationalist, counterbalancing Metternich and Austria; at the same time, the Empire experienced unemployment and rising prices as a result of poor harvests.

Professionally, the rest of 1816 passed quietly for the tired Minister, who was concerned with fiscal policy and monitoring the spread of liberalism in Germany and nationalism in Italy. In August 1826 Russian Foreign Minister Nesselrode rejected a proposal by Metternich to convene a congress to discuss the events that eventually led to the outbreak of civil war in Portugal. The generous Treaty of Paris was signed on 30 May. On 18 April Metternich announced that Austria was formally at war with Murat's Naples. By the end of 1832, they had clashed on virtually every issue. [44] On 7 March Metternich was awakened with the news that Napoleon had escaped from his island prison of Elba[46] and within an hour had met with both the Tsar and the King of Prussia.

The Coalition rejected this utterly, and the agreement seemed further off than ever. He set about using the marriage, and flattery, to renegotiate the terms set out at Schönbrunn. At the Czernowitz talks, in Metternich's absence, an impatient Tsar asked for a congress in the then Russian capital Saint Petersburg to discuss the Eastern Question. When the Tsar tried to postpone it to October Metternich agreed but effected conditions that prevented Alexander from exercising any advantage due to his de facto control of Poland. [16] He arrived at a critical juncture in European diplomacy,[15] soon growing worried about the territorial ambitions of Napoleon Bonaparte, newly the leader of France. In September Metternich returned to Vienna, entertained along the way by various German princes keen to entertain the focus of Prussian intrigue. Johann Hugo Franz, Count von Metternich-Winneburg, 18. Metternich rejected the Tsar's idealistic plans for (among other things) a single European army. Politically, Metternich had a new adversary, Lord Palmerston, who had taken over at the British Foreign Office in 1830. In November 1813 he offered Napoleon the Frankfurt proposals, which would allow Napoleon to remain Emperor but would reduce France to its "natural frontiers" and undo its control of most of Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands. Shortly afterwards Metternich was invited to join Napoleon at Dresden, where he could put the terms directly. [53] It was a pleasant month-long trip, although it was there he received news of the death of his father at the age of 72.
