This chapter discusses the liberation of Poland from Russia. The November Insurrection was inspired by the July Revolution in Paris and the Belgian Uprising in September. Prompted by a sense of duty and a passionate concern for the fate of his country, Czartoryski felt he had to do something to tame the fires of insurrection and to prevent a breach with Russia, yet to impose some control over events was no easy task. Czartoryski remained President of the National Government and in that capacity, he played a key role in a war that was unavoidable. His dream of an honourable and mutually beneficial Russo-Polish relationship lay in ruins. For Czartoryski the Russian connection — political, material, and emotional — had truly come to an end.

Keywords:   November Insurrection, Russo-Polish relationship, Prince Adam Czartoryski, Poland, Russia
