This chapter develops the claim that international public power became possible in 1815 with the Vienna Settlement ending the Napoleonic Wars. It first establishes the historical preconditions for states to form a public power together, narrating the rise of international society between Westphalia and Napoleon. It then shows how the Napoleonic Wars marked a turning point.
