Abstract

In the history of migration, the émigrés of the French Revolution have long remained marginalised although they formed an important element of cultural transfer in the decades around 1800 when the Old Regime came to an end across the European continent. In 1790s Brunswick, almost 1.000 émigrés found refuge, and some of them gained high positions at the duke's court, contributing to a late flowering of French theatre, literature, and conversation culture at a time that is usually being hailed as the "classical age" of German culture.
