Chapter Summary

After the Crimean War, Austria, jointly with Russia, continued to oppose the return of the Romanian exiled former revolutionaries to their homes, a return which, it was suspected, was likely to supply the embattled Principalities with an important group of liberal-oriented politicians and a left-wing counterweight to the conservative and moderate factions on the ground. The underground activities of Mazzini's Central European Committee were seen belonged to the pre-Crimean era. A series of publications by pro-Romanians had been circulating before and during the Paris peace negotiations of 1855-6, popularising the Principalities, their history and culture, and sending both implicit and explicit unionist messages. In early 1856, Armand Lévy was in Bucharest, liaising between the exiled Romanians in Paris and the partisans of the union back home. A travel permit was arranged for Dumitru Brătianu to travel from London with Lord Clarendon's retinue.
