From the beginning of his second term as prime minister, Disraeli secured a key role for himself in Britain's foreign policy. He perceived the Three Emperors' League as the greatest threat, which, in his opinion, had the potential to isolate Britain and resolve the Eastern Question unilaterally in its favour. It is as a result of this that from the beginning of the uprising in Bosnia and Herzegovina he placed the responsibility for the Eastern Crisis at the door of the Three Emperors' League, primarily Austria‐Hungary in the beginning and, later on, Russia. His main preoccupation became the preservation of Britain's prestige and the break‐up of the Three Emperors' League through arrangements with one of its members. In comparison to this goal, the details of policies in the Balkans were insignificant to Disraeli.
