Abstract

The paper examines in detail the later stages (1697–8) of English mediating diplomacy undertaken at the Porte by William, Lord Paget, William iii’s envoy to the Ottoman court, through negotiations in person or by correspondence with Ottoman and Austrian ministers. An attempt is made to ‘globalise’ the negotiations within the context of both the so-called ‘Glorious Revolution’ in England in 1688 and the ensuing Nine Years War, and the Sacra Lega conflict between the Ottoman and Habsburg empires. Particular attention is paid to Paget’s difficult and complicated diplomatic negotiations with the Ottoman grand vizier Amûja-zâde Hüseyn Pasha and Chief Dragoman Alexander Mavrocordato, and with Ulrich, Graf Kinsky, the Austrian Chancellor, between the ending of the Nine Years War and Ottoman defeat on the battlefield of Zenta in the summer of 1697, and the opening of the Congress of Carlowitz in the autumn of 1698. Considerable use is made of Lord Paget’s diplomatic correspondence from these years, now preserved in the Library of the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

The Treaties of Carlowitz (1699) includes recent studies on the Lega Sacra War of 1683-1699 against the Ottoman Empire, the Peace treaties of Carlowitz (1699), and on the general impact of the conflict upon Modern Europe and the Balkans. With its contributions written by well-known international specialists in the field, the volume demonstrates that sometimes important conflicts tend to be forgotten with time, overshadowed by more spectacular wars, peace congresses or diplomatic alliances. The “Long War” of 1683-1699 is a case in point. By re-thinking and re-writing the history of the conflict and the subsequent peacemaking between a Christian alliance and the Ottoman state at the end of the 17th century, new perspectives, stretching into the present era, for the history of Europe, the Balkans and the Near East are brought into discussion.
