Georges iv signed a mandate to affix the grand seal on an act "containing our ratification of the act of acceptance of the Duke of Holstein-oldenburgh, to a general agreement concluded in Paris on 25 April 1818". The mandate is linked to the regulations made at the convention to come (1814 / 1815) to reorganize the post-Napoleonian Europe. The Duchy of Oldenburg was a German state located on the left bank of the Weser with a coastline on the North Sea. The reigning dynasty was hostein-gottorp, the family in which Catherine the great Russie was born: "In 1806, oldenburg was occupied by the French and Dutch and the Duke [william] and the regent [his cousin peter frederick louis] fled; but in 1807, guillaume was restored and the state joined the confederation of the rhin in October 1808.
When guillaume and stone refused to exchange oldenburg for erfurt in 1810, Napoleon seized the state, joined it to hanovre and incorporated it into the france. His action was considered in russia as a deliberate affront. This became one of the main complaints of the Tsar Alexander against the france, and an indirect cause of the War of 1812 and the disastrous campaign of russia for napoleon. Oldenburg became part of the new German confederation after 1815.
