Chapter Summary

In the wake of the February events, in early 1848 most Wallachian forty-eighters were back in Romania, channelling their now re-ignited revolutionary spirit via the activities of a Committee for the liberation of the homeland which had sprung from the already existing political and para-Masonic association Justice-Brotherhood, founded in 1843 in Bucharest. Throughout the dramatic events which took place in France, Bucharest and elsewhere in Europe in the spring and summer of 1848, the British Consul in Bucharest, Robert Colquhoun, kept the Foreign Office informed in great detail of developments in the Principalities. Colquhoun wrote about everything, from invasions of locusts, fires, earthquakes and cattle epidemics to the characters of the men in power and the intrigues and clashes of the foreign consuls in Bucharest.
