Carlsbad Decrees

From August 6-31, 1819, ministers from Austria, Prussia, Bavaria, Saxony, Mecklenburg, Hannover, Württemberg, Nassau, Baden, Saxony-Weimar-Eisenach, and Hesse participated in a conference in Carlsbad. The conference had been arranged by Clemens Prince von Metternich (1773-1859). The conference resulted in repressive new laws that aimed to suppress liberal and national agitation in the population.
