After the invasion of Poland and seizure of their parent's landed fortune, the two young brothers, Prince Konstanty Czartoryski and Prince Adam Jerzy Czartoryski went on a journey to St. Petersburg. Their purpose was to enter service at Empress Catherine II's court, to placate and reverse her sequestration order. This chapter describes the significant events highlighting Poland's international position, constitutional reform, magnate opposition, as well as Adam Czartoryski's political association with Russia.
