Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
As far as I understand it ... which is likely to be vaguely ... the Pan-European Revolutions of 1848 were essentially stillborn as those who the French Revolutionaries counted on as allies within the French body politic recoiled from the prospect.
Europe saw revolutions in 1830 as well. I think since the American and French Revolutions the West has had a revolutionary outbreak every generation or two until WWII. The achievement of over 60 years of peace and stability is quite remarkable.
