This article reviews recent contributions to the study of 19th century political exile with the goal to offer suggestions which might be useful for re-accommodating the Romanian historiographic approaches in a European framework. It discusses the relations between revolution and exile, political exile, emigration and asylum, the patterns of political exile, its connection with 19th century nationalism, as well aspects related to the internalization of historical experiences, trauma and narrative reflections of emotions. The author hints to the fact that the historical sources available on various 19th century Romanian exiles, especially on the 1848ers after the defeat of the revolution, can provide insights which will contribute not only to a better comparative understanding of historical processes, but will also allow to put the Romanian experiences to the core of discussions on the transnational patterns of 19th century Europe.
