Chapter Summary

On 13 January 1856, Ion (Jean) Voinescu II, the former Romanian foreign minister in the 1848 provisional government and leading forty-eighter, who had died in exile in Pau on 31 December aged only forty-seven, was buried at the Père Lachaise. The ceremony occasioned another symbolic graveside gathering of European republicans. The Romanian exiles, divided by competing interests and loyalties, were united once more by the death of a friend and fellow militant. In Britain, too, the funerals of revolutionary and republican exiles were occasions for large gatherings.
