China - Gate of British Legation, Peking

Lantern slide of Gate of British Legation, Peking (Beijing). In diplomacy, a legation was a diplomatic representative office lower than an embassy. Where an embassy was headed by an Ambassador, a legation was headed by an Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary. The distinction between a legation and embassy was gradually dropped following World War II. All diplomatic representative offices are now designated as embassies or high commissions..

London Peace Conference or the Conference of the Ambassadors Featured Print

London Peace Conference or the Conference of the Ambassadors

The Balkan (Turkish, Greek, Montenegran and Serbian) delegates at the peace conference in London. The London Conference of 19121913, also known as the London Peace Conference or the Conference of the Ambassadors, was an international summit of the six Great Powers of that time (Great Britain, France, Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia and Italy) convened in December 1912 due to the successes of the Balkan League armies against the Ottoman Empire in the First Balkan War. In particular, the conference intended to arbitrate between the warring powers as to territorial acquisitions, and also to determine the future of Albania, whose independence was proclaimed during the conflict. The London Peace Conference was attended by those delegates from the Balkan allies (including Greece) who had not signed the previous armistice, as well as Ottoman Empire (depicted here). The treaty was signed on 30th May 1913, but further disputes led to the Second Balkan War breaking out on 16th June 1913. Date: circa 1912
