Summary/Abstract: Although the birth of the current European construction can be considered the Schuman Declaration, the idea of the "Union of Europe" was not a new project on the table of European politicians. Until then, this project has been the subject of analysis of several scholars. With more or less political shades, works of Pierre Dubois , of King George of Bohemia and his Ambassador, Antoine Marini, of Jean-Jacques Rousseau , Jeremy Bentham , or Immanuel Kant , argued in one form or another the idea of a united Europe. In order to pass from the idea to the political shape and institutional framework, it was necessary for Europe to go through the experience of two major conflagrations. This process was not easy and overcame many difficult times since the official release until today. Some of these were even concluded by real compromises. This article proposes an analysis of those difficult times, focusing on the role of Britain in initiating / developing them.
