This chapter, which examines the engagement of the natural leaders of late-Georgian Belfast with contemporary events in Europe, analyzes the influence of the sequence of revolutions in southern Europe during the late 1810s and early 1820s and the July Revolution of 1830 in providing inspiration and encouragement to the reformers of Belfast. It also explores how these reformers responded to Napoleon Bonaparte and considers the role of the Tennents in the formation of a distinct coterie of advanced reformers who advocated liberal or pro-reform politics.

Keywords:   natural leaders, late-Georgian Belfast, Europe, revolutions, July Revolution, reformers, Napoleon Bonaparte, Tennents, pro-reform politics
