The Policy of July Monarchy in Mediterranean

Tanshina Natalya

   The Mediterranean area had a great importance for the foreign policy of the July Monarchy 1830-1848, that was caused by the stable and enduring interests of France in this region. The policy of king Louis-Philippe in the Mediterranean included such aspects as the war in Algeria and Morocco; the preservation and increasing of French influence in Egypt and Syria during the Eastern crisis; intervention in the internal affairs of Spain in the context of the Carlist wars and the Franco-British rivalry for supremacy in the Peninsula; the strengthening of the position of France in the Italian States, primarily in Piedmont and Naples.
