Paris, Treaty of (1815)


a treaty signed in Paris on November 20, between the members of the Seventh Anti-French Coalition (Russia, Great Britain, Austria, and Prussia) and France: It restored the Bourbons for the second time.

Unlike the treaty of 1814, the treaty of 1815 stipulated that France was to retain its 1790 borders. Thus, France was deprived of several strategically important areas, including Philippeville and Saarlouis. In addition, France was obliged to pay an indemnity of 700 million francs. Its territory was to be occupied for three to five years by an allied army of 150,000, which was to be stationed on the northeastern line of French fortifications. France was obliged to pay for the support of the occupying forces.
