About the Book

If you would like to know the names of the royalty and learn about their castles and their holdings, you will find the information in Volume IV annotated primarily from Valvosar's writings. Fascinating facts abound including the rise and then the suppression of the Jesuits. Empress Maria Theresa accedes to the throne of the Habsburg monarchy and brings about needed changes in education, agriculture, land reform, and roads to name a few. To increase the welfare of the state, she liberated farmers from serfdom, from the pressures of statutory labor, and from urbarial taxes. The invasion of Napoleon occurred in 1797. The reforms he brought to Slovenia were long lasting.
