Sample text

The French may have regained Alsace Lorraine, but they knew that in terms of potential economic and military strength Germany remained the stronger of the two. The Germans were a considerably larger population, and France had suffered proportionately heavier casualties in the war.

The populations were asked if they wanted to Before the First World War 35 become part of France, and doubtless most of them did so wish, although the presence of French armies might have helped to encourage the ‘Yes’ votes. But in any case most of these areas were populated by French speakers. But after the defeat of Napoleon in 1815 the organisers of the peace, meeting at the Congress of Vienna, returned to the principle that land and people belonged to the sovereign, and that self-determination would be prejudicial to the so-called principle of the balance of power.

Catholic Relief Acts passed in 1778 enabled Catholics to teach and inherit land and hope for advancement in their own country.
