A Man of Honour


Oxford University Press

This chapter describes Vienna as it became an effective political and social centre of Europe. It also discusses Alexander's Polish policy and the obstacles facing it: the susceptibilities of Russian opinion. Many Russians opposed the surrender of Catherine II's Polish conquests; they doubted long-term Polish loyalty, fearing that the Poles might become yet again ‘the scourge of Russia’, and that Russia would risk losing her influence in European affairs. The ‘Bases de la Constitution’was an admirable document worthy of one of the most distinguished representatives of the Polish Enlightenment, but nothing could obscure the fact that the 1815 treaties were a far cry from the ideal of the total reunification of Poland.

Keywords:   Vienna, Polish Policy, Catherine II, Bases de la Constitution, Polish Enlightenment, Poland, Russia
