Summary/Abstract: The English diplomacy, in traditional association with the Dutch one, failed not only in preventing the Austrian-Russian-Turkish war of 1736-1739 but, more importantly, in their attempts to end this war though mediation, as previously managed of Karlowitz (1699) and Passarowitz (1718). With the weakening of the English trade in the Levant and the constant alliance of the insular empire with the Habsbourg Empire and, more recently, its orientations towards Russia, the political influence of the London cabinet at the Porte experienced a considerable decline. On the contrary, France, the reputed enemy of Austria, was preferred at Constantinople in negotiating a peace which proved entirely beneficial for the Ottomans.
