VERITAS Research Institute for History and Archives

The (Visegrád) V4 Architectural Foundation and the VERITAS Institute jointly host our colleague Ádám Schwarczwölder, whose lecture is entitled An 800-Year Marriage: The Hungarian-Croatian Polity.

At the turn of the 12th century, Croatia entered into a personal union with the Kingdom of Hungary. Under the leadership of the Ban, Croatia enjoyed territorial autonomy, local rule (natio croatica) and retained a provincial parliament (the Sabor). Hungary and Croatia lived in peaceful coexistence for centuries and later fought side-by-side against the Turkish occupiers. By the 19th century, however, conflict had arisen around the question of greater Croatian autonomy, spurred by the nationalist movements of the time. In 1848, Croatia severed all public administrative ties with Hungary. Twenty years later, the Hungarian National Assembly and the Croatian Sabor hammered out the 1868 Hungarian–Croatian Settlement, which placed relations between the two countries on a different foundation.
