George Hay, 8th Earl of Kinnoull, was an unconventional ambassador. A Scottish aristocrat who had been imprisoned for his Jacobite sympathies and almost bankrupted by his involvement in the South Sea Bubble, Lord Kinnoull had no previous diplomatic experience when he was unexpectedly appointed ambassador to the Ottoman Empire in 1729. Leaving his wife and family of ten at their Yorkshire home. George Hay, 8th Earl of Kinnoull, was an unconventional ambassador. A Scottish aristocrat who had been imprisoned for his Jacobite sympathies and almost bankrupted by his involvement in the South Sea Bubble, Lord Kinnoull had no previous diplomatic experience when he was unexpectedly appointed ambassador to the Ottoman Empire in 1729. Leaving his wife and family of ten at their Yorkshire home, Lord Kinnoull departed England for Constantinople with his political, financial and personal suitability for the role all in doubt. How would he cope with the complex world of international politics? Or negotiate the sensitive relationship between Muslims and Christians? And why was he subsequently recalled to England in disgrace? x000D x000D The Earl and His Butler in Constantinople traces Lord Kinnoull's eventful journey to the heart of the Ottoman Empire, where he served as ambassador for seven years - and back again. His butler, Samuel Medley, was his constant companion throughout this time and his is almost the only surviving servant's diary from the period. Through the pages of his fascinating diary, Samuel Medley is revealed to have all those qualities of loyalty, humility, reliability, discretion and integrity expected of a good butler. As well as daily, domestic news of the weather and whom 'My Lord' goes to visit, Medley offers a perceptive commentary on major events in Constantinople and war-torn Europe and the people he meets, revealing an intellect hardly typical of an 18th-century butler. x000D x000D From this unique and colourful source, as well as from Lord Kinnoull's despatches and family letters, Nigel and Caroline Webb have produced a remarkable book which casts fresh light on the Ottoman Empire and British politics in the 18th century. It also offers vivid portraits of the cosmopolitan city of Constantinople at this critical stage in its history and of an idiosyncratic Earl and his exceptional butler which will captivate readers. eBooks, , Earl And His Butler In Constantinople, The~~EBook~~9780857712264~~Nigel Webb, Webb Caroline, , Earl And His Butler In Constantinople, The, Nigel Webb, 9780857712264, I.B.Tauris, 11/30/2008, , , , I.B.Tauris
