ABSTRACT
In the early nineteenth century, the Romanian Principalities crossed an extremely difficult situation in terms of their legal status report of the international framework. The Romanian territories became important to the expansion policy pursued by Great Powers in Eastern Europe. On a turbulent background caused by the Napoleonic wars, the familiar “Oriental Question” came to the forefront of Eastern international politics and diplomatic disputes, degenerating into military confrontation.This study aims to provide information on the early Russo-Turkish War of 1806-1812 in terms of consular reports and travel narratives of the French who were at that time in the Principalities. The major historical sources give a very interesting and nuanced picture of the political-military events and the situation in the two Romanian countries. Combined with information already known, these historical sources scattered through several collections of sources and publications, some of them less consulted, allow a better understanding of the social, political, economic realities of Danubian Principalities.
