In 1807 Napoleon creates a short lived Grand Duchy of Warsaw which does not survive the defeat of the Emperor. The congress of Vienna maintains the principle of Polish partition, all in creating a small kingdom called the "Congress Kingdom" under Russian trusteeship.



what does the all in mean here?? my best guess is "merely" but i wasn't sure.
I looked up my dictionary, but it wasn't listed.

It can be worth searching for a phrase including a hyphen.

"All-in" = all inclusive

I think the author means "thus" or "in this way".
