What prevented the Holy Union from becoming the guarantor of peace and stability in Europe? Was such an outcome inevitable, or could the fate and role of the Holy Alliance have been different?

The intentions of the main members of the Holy Alliance were inherently conservative: after all, they sought not to allow any changes in Europe. But two circumstances did not allow the Holy Union to become the guarantor of peace and stability in Europe: First, in Prussia and Austria, the influence of the feudal order was still strong, but in Russia these orders prevailed. Such “stability”, of course, harmed both the development of the countries themselves and their relations with other European powers, primarily with Britain. Secondly, there were serious contradictions and between the main participants of the Holy Alliance, Austria and Prussia vied for dominance in Germany, where unification processes had already begun, And both of them were dissatisfied with the significant increase in Russia’s influence in Europe. The Holy Alliance supported stability and peace in Europe not so much with concrete actions as with its external power. This outcome was inevitable due to contradictions between the participants, then they simply did not renew their agreements.
