Abstract: Papers concerning Guillaume-Marie-Anne Brune's nomination as French ambassador to Turkey and diplomatic relations between Turkey and France.
Brune was one of Napoleon Bonaparte's marshals and the ambassador to Turkey. He was the commander of many armies for Bonaparte, with whom he fell in and out of favor. Brune was finally murdered in the streets of Avignon by Royalists in 1815.
Papers concern his nomination as ambassador, minutes of meetings, treaty documents, correspondence with Talleyrand, and documents relating to other matters of diplomatic relations between Turkey and France.
