Chapter Summary

The year 1852 had an ominous start. In the aftermath of the ‘Deux Décembre’ President Louis Napoléon assumed the title of 'Prince- President' on 1 January. Aristocratic titles, abolished in 1848, were re-established on 24 January. 1852 was an equally bad year for republicans and revolutionaries elsewhere. 1852 was also a year of personal losses among the expatriates. On 24 May 1852, the Rosettis moved to the village of Douet, near Nantes, where life was less expensive than in Paris, and where they lived a simple, frugal life . 1852, a year of high drama for the exiles, both French and Romanian, ended with the saddening news of the death of yet another one of them, the historian Nicolae Bălcescu, who succumbed to consumption in Palermo on 28 November at the age of only thirty-three.
