 The Holy Alliance was a treaty drawn up by Tsar Alexander I in 1815 between Russia, Prussia and Austria. Signed in Paris after Napoleon's defeat, its public purpose was to spread the Christian values of charity and peace throughout Europe (hence its name). Its more practical, political task was to guard against the spread of revolution.
