    - In Vienna, Austria - It took place from 1814 - 1815 - to restore stability to Europe among its great powers and prevent another widespread war; in this case, by containing France - This point is harder to answer. There was no one leader at the Congress because of the multinational nature of the gathering. There were a number of influential ambassadors and aristocrats, but no singular leader. I suppose you could look at Talleyrand as a major player due to his ability to get France a seat at the bargaining table as well as avoid crippling reparations resulting in a soft landing for his defeated nation. - All European nations were represented, although the most powerful were the "Big Four": Austria, Russia, Prussia, and the United Kingdom. France was also in a strong negotiating position thanks to Tallyrand's efforts. - This is similar to "why" the meeting was held. The Congress sought to restore the peace and status quo of Europe's borders and political landscape as it was before Napoleon as well as to contain France. France retained its borders as it was in 1792 while bottled in by strengthening certain regions such as the Kingdom of the Netherlands and Prussia. The European order established by the Congress had also sought to quash the "revolutionary" ideals from France, stifling the democratic hopes for patriots such as the Poles or Germans to have a unified nation of their own.
