Today in History, Sept. 26

Alexander I of Russia was the founder of the Holy Alliance.

198 years ago today, on Sept. 26, 1815, Austria, Russia and Prussia signed the Holy Alliance. The alliance united the three monarchies in their fight against revolutionary movements and served to reaffirm the divine right of kings.

The Holy Alliance was an initiative of Tsar Alexander I, also known as Alexander the Blessed.
