Descriptif

At the Congress of Vienna, the Polish question was a tricky oneand depended mainly on the Russian position. After Napoleon’s escape from Elba,the discussions became harsher and Tsar Alexander I managed to extend hissovereignty to the heart of Poland. Though the Congress’s Final Act dated 9June 1815 did not allow him to reunite the whole former Jagiellonian kingdom.The main principles of the treaty were the result of the Great Compromise of 8February. The tsar eventually agreed to give back Galicia to Austria and partof the Duchy of Warsaw, to Frederick Willima’s Prussia under the name of GrandDuchy of Posen, apart from Krakow, which became a free city -the Kingdom ofPoland ; the king was the Tsar, namely Alexander.  His dealth in 1825 upset the relationshipbetween the tsarist power and the Congress Kingdom as the new tsar Nicolas Iintented to exercise closer control over it : this eventually led to thePolish uprising and, in its wake, to the Polish-Russian war, brought to an endby the entry of Russian troops into Warsaw in September 1831 with the view ofresoring order, During the hostilities, Walewski was entrusted by theProvisional Gouvernment of Poland with a diplomatic mission to London. Based ona careful persual of the four volumes of Walewski’s archives (Diplomatic Archives),with occasional references to Palmerston and Talleyrand’s already searchedarchives and Sebastiani’s -soon to be this paper provides insight intoWalewski’s mission to London.
