Abstract

The article discusses the impact of a severe chronic illness, which the imperial and Austrian diplomat Count Nikolaus Esterházy suffered from, on his duties as an envoy in Madrid (1751—1752) and ambassador in St. Petersburg (1753—1761). Ambassadorial reports are perhaps the only source of information about his state of health. On the one hand, this information is reliable, since count should not desinform the Vienna court, which made decisions on the basis of the submitted information. On the other hand, the illness became a trump card for the diplomat, which he repeatedly and with varying success tried to play in order to push the Vienna court towards certain decisions that were advantageous to him.
