Chapter Summary

Disillusioned with the possibility of reaching an agreement with the Hungarians, Dumitru Bratianu left Pest in mid-June, travelling via Sibiu, where he met with the leaders of the Transylvanian Romanian action committee. Indulging in adventurous gesticulation in foreign affairs, least of all over the Eastern Question, was not on Jules Bastide's agenda. The Romanians may have won French republican hearts, but not French weapons and military expertise. In late September 1848, Bucharest was held in the grip of the joint Turkish-Russian occupation. The turncoat Metropolitan of Wallachia, Neophyte, a former member of the revolutionary government, now had the opportunity to display the latest in a series of opportunistic reincarnations. Much of the British Consul's official correspondence for the months of October and November 1848 was concerned with presenting the situation in Bucharest as a veritable reign of terror.
