This article deals with the French foreign policy related to the Revolution of 1820 in the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies. The Austrian military intervention in 1821 resolved the Neapolitan revolutionary crisis. Nevertheless, before and during the Congress of Troppau (1820), France tried to implement a political-diplomatic action aiming to reacquire a leading role among the powers of the Restoration Europe. The main sources of this proposed analysis are the unpublished manuscripts of the diplomat Edmond de Boislecomte, member of the French delegation to the Congress.
