This chapter discusses the events of 1848, the year that signified the triumph of the idea of nation. Romanian intellectuals made a lot of effort to achieve this, from justifying demands for independence or political autonomy in the Habsburg monarchy, to contemplating a union of all Romanians on both sides of the Carpathians. Their particular sense of community was a result of the influence of Western thought and example, which means that 1848 contributed to the Romanians' integration into Europe.

Keywords: 1848; idea of nation; Romanian intellectuals; triumph; independence; political autonomy; union; sense of community; integration
