A Man of Honour


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the political unrest that swept across much of western and southern Europe. At the opening of the second session of the Polish Diet, Alexander warned the Poles against ‘political passions’, abuse of liberty, and the ‘evil spirit’ that was threatening to engulf the continent. Czartoryski feared that the violence and revolution would accompany the ascendancy of the principle of nationality in Europe, unless forestalled by radical changes in the international order and by the introduction of representative government.

Keywords:   Polish Diet, Prince Adam Czartoryski, nationality, violence, revolution, representative government
