Summary/Abstract: In the period known as the “Spring of the Nations” (1848 – 1849) Croatia, and particularly its ban (governor) Josip Jelačić became of special interest to the aristocratic fraction of the Polish emigrants known as Hotel Lambert. This circle, formed around the prince Adam Jerzy Czartoryski (1770 – 1861) approximately in 1831, was named after the Parisian residence of the prince Czartoryski. In the years of 1848 and 1849, this organization had the intention to win governor Jelačić over for the Polish political plans. The author of this article wishes, first and foremost, to focus on describing the background of the Hotel Lambert operations, which were at first aimed at winning over governor Jelačić and then at dethroning him. Andrija Torkvat Brlić from Brod also took part in those historic diplomatic and political events. He was sent to Paris as Jelačić’s emissary to establish contact with the Hotel Lambert and the French government and to present Jelačić’s viewpoints.
