Chapter Summary

By September 1849, the Hungarian and Polish leaders who had survived the armed conflicts of 1848-49 had joined the Romanian forty-eighters in exile. Ion Ghica, as Wallachian agent in the Ottoman capital, was joined there by Eliade Rădulescu and other Romanians of the pro-Turkish faction. In September 1849, Zinca Golescu herself was in Constantinople, under semi-arrest, on her way back from Bursa, where two of her sons, Radu and Alexandru, now lived in exile. As political pariahs, the Golescu women recoiled from high society circles in Bucharest which, they thought, were replete with moral corruption and political opportunism. They were happy to withdraw at Golesti and live in 'republican' austerity.
