    Abstract: This talk addresses the question of what revolutions were by looking at the way in which they were conceived, understood and performed by historical actors in the early 19th century. It does so by discussing a wave of uprisings demanding the introduction of constitutions that broke out in Portugal, Spain, Piedmont, Naples and the Ottoman Empire in the 1820s. In particular, it looks at the military origins of these events, all organized by army officers, and the ideals and practices related to them. By so doing, this talk will point to an alternative chronology and geography of the European age of revolutions that questions existing historical narratives, based on 1789, 1830 and 1848, and centered around France. It shows that the events of the 1820s inaugurated a wave of revolutions in Southern Europe that was independent from its French counterpart and that lasted up to 1870, thereby highlighting their significance in the history of representative governments and popular politics in Europe.
