European Wars and Conflicts of the 19th
19th Century was an era of nationalism, revolution, and
numerous wars between powerful nations. From the
Napoleonic Wars to the great Revolutions of the 1820s and
1840s, to the Wars of Unification for both Italy and
Germany, and beyond, the wars of the 1800s left lasting
effects on the entire world, and set the stage for the
great World Wars fo the next century.
Below is a
list (with links) of the major European wars of the
nineteenth century. Any such list is by nature somewhat
subjective, but the wars and conflicts listed below all
had a significant impact on history. This list of 19th
Century wars is presented in rough chronological order,
with the earliest listed first, and descending toward the
also war-filled 20th Century.
