Kosmopoliten wider Willen
Die „monarchiens“ als Revolutionsemigranten
[Reluctant Cosmopolitans: The "monarchiens" as Émigrés of the French Revolution]
Series:Pariser Historische Studien 104
Aims and Scope
Using the example of the Monarchiens, a group of constitutional monarchists, Friedemann Pestel examines how émigrés moved from being on the defensive to political action in the 1790s. Their pan-European connections gave them extensive visibility. The study shows the interconnections between lands of origin and exile. It corrects the prevalent view of emigrants as historical losers.
