Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses the negotiations for the Treaty of Adrianople, the response of the other powers, and the implications Russia's Balkan crossing had for future strategy. When news of the peace of Adrianople arrived in St Petersburg the sense of euphoria was understandable. The treaty — through its strategic annexations and extension of Russia's commercial and political rights — served to weaken the Ottoman Empire while preserving its existence, thus complementing perfectly the committee's decision. The chapter also considers the British reaction to Adrianople and the execution and revision of Adrianople in 1830–32.
