The Romanians, 1774–1866

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the events of 1848, the year that signified the triumph of the idea of nation. Romanian intellectuals made a lot of effort to achieve this, from justifying demands for independence or political autonomy in the Habsburg monarchy, to contemplating a union of all Romanians on both sides of the Carpathians. Their particular sense of community was a result of the influence of Western thought and example, which means that 1848 contributed to the Romanians' integration into Europe.

Keywords:   1848, idea of nation, Romanian intellectuals, triumph, independence, political autonomy, union, sense of community, integration
