    not known exactly Apart from interior political difficulties from which it applied to divert probably the occurrence of a partisan army under Imre Thököly fighting against Habsburg played probably a certain role In the year 1683 the Ottoman army stood to the second time in front of the gates of Vienna The Habsburgs Liberators Hungarian Kings or Colonists The Turks had strongly underestimated on the one hand the military strength of the Holy Roman Empire of German Nation on the other hand not counted on the broad European support for the relief of Vienna The result was not only a destroying defeat of the Ottoman army at Vienna but the beginning of the end of the Turkish supremacy in the Southeast of Central Europe In the remaining years of that century Hungary was back conquered completely and Habsburg stood in Belgrade Again people crowds were struck on escape by the conquests of the Habsburgs Beside the Turks settled here also very many to the Islam converted Hungarians fled Again whole regions were depopulated Here the new ruler Maria Theresia like also her father emperor Karl before settled inhabitants from their home countries the Habsburgs now from their Swabian possess Until today those Swabians are a substantial minority in Hungary The majority of the Hungarians welcomed the new Lords from Vienna first There were also no problems to confirm the Habsburgs according to the succession of 1526 as Hungarian Kings in the parliament The Habsburgs could be content with their Hungarians It seemed to be fact that they had conquered a country that laid between the Austrian home country and the feared Turks although their danger was banned and apart from a beautiful title meant a clear increase in power the in front of their own front door In this regard Hungary secured the supremacy of Habsburg in Germany However no development took place in the country Where for faith reasons the Calvinist Hungarians gave the ore catholic Habsburgs little confidence these behaved as conquerors Where strategically fortresses were judged as less important Habsburgs concerned rebellions and destroyed them to man all of them the army was not large enough And this concern was not without any reason In the years 1703 to 11 Ferenc Rákóczi tried to drive the Habsburgs out of the country and claimed the power in Transsylvania The Habsburgs had much more problems with the independence fighters than with the Turks but the rebellions failed It took one century until the country recovered from Turkish rule and the Habsburg conquest The period of the French revolution affected Hungary very little only In the 19th century was Hungary in a mental departure Ingenious newer of this time was count István Széchenyi He initiated not only the first bridging between Buda and Pest the famous chain bridge but also the academy of the sciences he made the Iron Gate on the Danube navigable and afterwards introduced steam shipping on the Danube and much more The trade got international dimensions and many factories were founded A law from the year 1840 permitted the free employment of trained factory workers thus broke the hegemony of the guilds In the year 1831 the Pest Commercial Hall was established the predecessor of the goods and stock exchange Ten years later the Pest credit bank took up their work Newly opened book publishing houses bookshops daily papers and magazines developed a modern oriented readership Also the reform eagerness and the tendency looking for a national identity grasped the German Jewish and Slavic parts of the middle class Common was the idea of a liberally Hungarian patriotism Not only in the coffeehouses and restaurants in which one met also associations were founded where organised intellectual circles and debating club established themselves On the way to new independence The time of the reforms caused fundamental changes They developed self dynamics being faster and stronger than the by legal meanings permanently hindered detail work on the change of the political system The tension unloaded itself to March 15h 1848 Without knowing by the censorship authority the program of twelve points of the Pilvax circle a group of young intellectuals who debated in the today still existing coffeehouse Pilvax and Sándor Pet fi s poem national song were published On the stages straight of the just established national museum recited Pet fi his poem and the twelve points were distributed under the population In a period without any liberty of opinion this has been more than just a prevail against the rulers although compared with the excesses of force elsewhere during the March revolutions a harmless venture The only direct effect was the release of the arrested Mihály Táncsics However some delegates of the Hungarian federal state parliament which still stayed in Pozsony caught the spark and succeeded to wrest from the emperor an own Hungarian government and to call up a new federal state parliament to Pest Prime Minister became Lajos Batthyány originating from southern Transdanubian aristocracy In Vienna the Earl of Metternich ruled in the name of the mentally deranged emperor Ferdinand II After the Viennese congress he had ensured in Austria that the absolutist monarchy suffocated all liberals or revolutionary ideas completely With the revolution in Vienna the system Metternich fell and with it in the meantime the completely confused monarch Fresh blood should save the Kaisertum Austria was found it in the young crown prince Franz Joseph who should printed his personal stamp onto a whole epoch At the age of 18 he climbed onto the emperor s throne in Vienna Franz Joseph I tried to turn back the innovations which his uncle had agreed with under the pressure of the people The Hungarians had a clear answer to it they pronounced on April 14th 1849 the Hungarian republic To the president they chose Lajos Kossuth Franz Joseph did not think about to allow the
