Part I of this book deals with diplomatic negotiations between the French Republic and the Ottoman Empire. By covering the entire period between 1792 and 1798, it introduces the chronological framework of this study. Chapter 1 deals with the regime change in French diplomatic representation, from the last ambassador of King Louis XVI to the first envoy of the Republic. The outbreak of war and the downfall of the king led to the replacement of monarchist government agents, altered the conduct of diplomacy, and changed the disposition of the French administration in the Levant. The chapter explains how French old regime diplomacy ended in 1792 and how the Ottoman government and the diplomatic corps in Istanbul reacted to this regime change.
