The Austrian Embassy in Paris from 1809-1812 in the Correspondence of Karl Schwarzenberg and Klemens Metternich

Lenderová, Milena

The contribution deals with the period of time when Karl of Schwarzenberg was the Austrian Ambassador to Paris, that is the period of his Paris mission before the commencement of the campaign in Russia. It presents Schwarzenberg's personality as seen in his hitherto unstudied correspondence between him and Klemens von Metternich, plus some other sources of a personal nature, belonging to the same period and the same social ambience. The fundamental source was the 29 letters Schwarzenberg sent to Metternich from Paris.
