Sometimes it’s better to ask forgiveness than permission : A study of a consul’s life in Alicante 1796–1801 (English)
Abstract [en]

By the turn of the 18th and 19th century the Swedish consular service had grown to a respectable size. Consulates and consul's had been placed out in most of the greater powers of Europe such as Spain, France and England, but also in the newly founded United States and the Barbary states of northern Africa. Since the founding of the Swedish consular service there had been no restrictions or sepcific rules regarding the duties of a swedish consul. This changed in 1793 when the charter named "konsulstadgan" was introduced. With the "konsulstadgan" in place Swedish consul's gained a specific framework within which they could act. "Konsulstadgan" gives the opportunity to study whether Swedish consul's acted within their work rights or if they acted with personal interests in mind, which in turn gives an insight into the possible impact that specific individuals could have had through out economic, trading and diplomatic history. This study revolves around the commitments of the Swedish consul Gustaf Baumgardt, located in Alicante, during his service between 1796 and 1801.
