Chapter Summary

On 12 September 1848, Dumitru Brătianu had been appointed official Wallachian representative in Paris by the Princely Lieutenancy, only to see his new diplomatic career cut short by the premature death of the Romanian revolution. While Rosetti and some of his companions were arrested and were taken along the Danube on a Turkish barge, Bratianu evaded arrest and famously accompanied Marie Rosetti on her mission to save her husband and his associates. Finally, he joined the Romanian diaspora in Paris and embarked on a decade of political propaganda before resuming his political career in Romania in 1857. One of the earliest, if modest, achievements of the first phase of Brătianu's campaign was the publication in 1849 of the pamphlet The Russians in Moldavia and Wallachia by William Lloyd Birkbeck, a friend of Dudley Stuart's and the honorary secretary of the Association of the Friends of Poland.
