What about the Vienna Convention? France signed it (only after 1945)

I am an even worse lawyer than a historian. And all I know about diplomacy is
that there is such a word. Which Vienna Convention are we talking about?

After a quick check with Google and Wikipedia, it seems that neither the
Vienna Convention of 1961 nor that of 1969 would have been known to either
the French or the Haitians of 1820/30.



The trouble with common sense is that it is so uncommon.
