Example text

94 Following the Crimean War waged between Russia on the one hand and Turkey, Britain and France on the other, the two Romanian provinces of Moldavia and Wallachia, which had been invaded by Russia, although remaining part of Turkey, became autonomous. In the Paris Convention of 19 August 1858 the Great Powers laid down that their inhabitants should be equal before the law and taxation, enjoy full property rights, and have access to public employment. 95 In March 1878 with the Treaty of San Stefano following the RussoTurkish War of 1876–77, the Great Powers recognised the independence of Romania, Serbia and Montenegro and obtained an autonomy for Bulgaria.

During the nineteenth century a number of wars and settlements involving Turkey would take place with, each time, that empire diminished until, on the outbreak of the First World War, Turkey’s only European foothold was the area between Constantinople and Adrianople. Interestingly, as Turkish authority waned and new states emerged in its place the European Great Powers imposed on them a system of protection of religious minorities.
