In 1810 he was ambassador at Dresden, in 1814 at Rome, and from 1815 to 1818, and again from 1830 to 1838, at the court of England, where he gained the reputation of being an able diplomatist. He subsequently directed his energies to the support of the rising Hungarian national movement, and, in 1848, accepted the post of minister of foreign affairs in the Batthyani administration, where he endeavoured to bring about a reconciliation between the Austrian and the Hungarian ministry.
