Her two literary successes provided a small improvement in her finances, but also celebrity which she continued to enjoy, using the influence she had to foster the advancement of friends and her relatively small circle of Lorraine cousins. Key featured books are on the themes of abused women; women growing old and cast aside; but also strong women who changed society in their own ways, including Mme de Graffigny.

This exile society gained an additional dimension when areas that had been "revolutionalised" by the wars of revolution were recaptured by the coalition powers or occupied, and now, as in Poland and Naples , supporters of the revolution were forced to flee by its opponents. These interrelations began to dissolve the individual characters of the various revolutions and the emigrations they caused.
The reason is patchy record-keeping both on the French side and in host countries. During the first years of the Revolution, emigration was not yet regulated by law in France. On the contrary, the Constitution of explicitly stipulated a right to freedom of movement. With the outbreak of war and the overthrow of the monarchy in , these regulations became draconian: once an individual emigrated, all of his assets in France were confiscated, and his property was nationalized and sold.
Yet these lists were anything but reliable. Gaps in registration, the mistaken spelling of names, and duplicate names impeded the quantification of the emigration. Thus Greer's statistics, despite their shortcomings, continue to provide the basis for demographic conclusions about the French emigration that resolutely contradict the contemporary commonplace that it was a royalist noble phenomenon.
Of the ca.
On the one hand, numerous members of the Third Estate followed the nobles for whom they worked into exile; this service staff was often not registered at all, or only summarily, in host territories. In addition, there were many artisans, cooks, and musicians who lost the posts they had held in noble families in France and likewise sought to secure their livelihood via emigration. The implication is that emigration in numerous host territories far from France was clearly more socially exclusive than the aggregate numbers suggest.
In general, rates of emigration were much higher in the continental and maritime border regions of France than in the country's interior. If the first two Estates are considered separately, however, roughly one tenth of the nobility and a whole quarter of the clergy emigrated. In the coming months, he was followed by many of the noble families affected by the abolition of feudal rights, and then by royalist officers in the wake of the army reforms.
The Civil Constitution of the Clergy, which required an oath to the constitution, was the main catalyst for the emigration of high and lower clerics alike.
According to this view, the outbreak of war and above all the fall of the monarchy broadened the political spectrum of noble royalists and clerics to include constitutional monarchists in particular, who fled above all for humanitarian reasons and not as a conscious repudiation of the Revolution. In contrast, the king's other brother, the comte de Provence future Louis XVIII, — , emigrated in June — relatively late in comparison with numerous members of the high nobility — fleeing Paris in parallel with his brother Louis XVI and succeeding in the undertaking whereas the latter failed.
The political structure of the emigration can be divided into three large groups of actors who, however, can be differentiated less as clear political currents than according to their own self-understanding. A distinctive characteristic of these groups is that they were all essentially supporters of the monarchy. A second group were the above-named Anglophile monarchiens , who in turn vied with the so-called constitutionnels , the supporters of the Constitution of , to determine the nature of a future constitutional monarchy in France. A change occurred in admission practice in On the one hand, emigration from France increased yet again after the overthrow of the monarchy.
In response, a series of German territories issued strict regulations for admission and passage through. As the case of Prussia shows, however, these orders could barely be enforced, especially in areas along the borders. Thus, with local differences, a wide-ranging practice of toleration was established.
In Great Britain, in contrast, the outbreak of war in early markedly increased the fear of Jacobin emissaries and domestic unrest.
Thus in Parliament passed the Aliens Act. Nevertheless, such attempts at control proved limited in their reach. Thus the diplomatic pressure that was applied in particular as part of peace agreements with the Republic led to no corresponding change in the practice of toleration. War was the cause of massive internal migration within Habsburg lands, especially from Further Austria to more central regions or farther on to Russia; the authorities reacted by adjusting their admission regulations.
As French exiles seeking to return home quickly, they had a political interest in mobilizing their host societies against revolutionary France.
With the exception of a minority, however, they did not establish themselves permanently in exile. On the one hand, in comparison with their fellow exiles in continental Europe, they were somewhat more successful when placed under a British protectorate and fighting as part of a British military expedition.

In the USA, colonial planters decisively and enduringly shaped French Creole culture in the southern states , Louisiana in particular. Together they criticized the expansive character of the Revolution, which was republicanizing Europe, and implored the European powers to act more decisively against advancing revolutionary troops.
On the other hand, they found advocates in the Huguenots, who were then in their third or fourth generation and assigned no essential importance to confessional differences. The Jacobites, finally, served as both a positive and a negative historical reference point. They also provided argumentative ballast and political relevance, which helped to counteract anti-French sentiment in exile countries and to coordinate military, ideological, and journalistic activity to fight the Revolution.
