Summary/Abstract: The Russian intentions to annex the two Romanian Principalities to the Romanov Empire have remained constant, given the increase in the French influence in Constantinople, and the modification of the Romanian Principalities’ status, in the sense of annexing Moldavia and Wallachia, became of interest at the beginning of the 19th century. Most of the nobility from the Romanian Principalities did not grasp the idea of simply turning into instruments of tsarist policy towards the Ottoman Empire, so the Romanians were faced once again with the situation of choosing the “alliance” formula most favorable to their objectives.
