Ottoman Diplomats : Letters from the Imperial Legation in Brussels (1849–1914)

 Ottoman Diplomats : Letters from the Imperial Legation in Brussels (1849–1914)

"Ottoman Diplomats is a digitization project of the research group Power in History: Centre for Political History at the University of Antwerp (UA). It offers online access to a selection of diplomatic documents from the Imperial Legation in Brussels (1849–1914).
Next to telegrams and periodic diplomatic reports by Ottoman diplomatic agents (dispatches, dĂ©pĂȘches) in Brussels and replies and instructions by their superiors in Istanbul, the collection also contains some letters by Ottoman consuls in Belgium and by Ottoman ambassadors or ministers in other European capitals.
The letters are in French and their content is very diverse: reports dealing with Belgian and international society, politics, commerce, industry and finance, but also letters about matters of protocol, or internal issues of the Ottoman Mission."
