Chapter Summary

Some of the Romanian students and political émigrés took actual part in the fighting of February 1848 on Parisian barricades, alongside the Belgians, Irish, Poles, Hungarians, Piedmontese and others immigrant Communities. In the wake of the victorious French revolution, most immigrant communities Hungarians, Piedmontese, Sardinians, Belgians, Swiss, Poles hoped that the new republican regime might supply arms and logistical support for freedom fighters organized into 'legions' to return to their respective countries, overthrow authoritarian regimes or foreign domination there and fight for the unification and the independence of emergent nation-states. Their hopes were seconded in France by the extreme left, radicals and secret society conspirators - people such as Auguste Blanqui, the new Paris prefect Marc Caussidière, Armand Barbès, François-Vincent Raspail and public figures such as George Sand - who would have wanted the see the revolution exported to the rest of Europe.
