Résumé
EN
This chapter is an analytical state-of-the-art in the history of Muslim diplomacy in Central Europe. It proposes to conduct a multipolar European political history, to qualify the importance of Western European courts in the relationships between the Christian-ruled Europe and the Ottoman world, but also to highlight the role of both personal networks and unofficial agents. Focusing mainly on Ottoman, North African and Moroccan embassies in the Habsburg Monarchy, the Kingdom of Poland and the Kingdom of Prussia, he underlines the existence of ancient and structured trans-imperial social worlds, which create the conditions for political commensurability between Christian and Muslims rulers. Finally, this chapter significantly reduces the importance of the model of the Treaties of Westphalia in 1648 in the construction of a European political history.
