How were international interventions legally justified in the 19th century?

I am looking at the construction of international law in the 19th century and especially at international lawyers and their contribution within foreign affairs ministries (Prussia/Germany, Austria, France, Russia, etc.). I will give an insight on how these international lawyers have contributed on the juridification of international relations and the justification of external intervention from a global perspective.
