The distinction between the two separate diplomatic systems was highlighted and seemed to reach its full extent during the Russo-Turkish War because of the conflicts that arose in countries such as Russia, Austria, and Prussia. Also, it is important to note that by this period, the Anglo-Bourbon rivalry had extended to an international level. The agreement at Neustadt in 1770 that Austria and Prussia made to continue being neutral about the wars over Port Egmont furthered the Anglo-French leadership's breakdown. This highlighted how the conflicts between the Bourbons and the British entailed their own political priorities. This chapter looks into the implications of the developments experienced by those that comprised Eastern Europe.
