Josip Jelačić

Count Josip Jelačić von Bužim was the Ban of Croatia between 23 March 1848 and 19 April 1859. He was a member of the House of Jelačić and a noted army general, remembered for his military campaigns during the Revolutions of 1848 and for his abolition of serfdom in Croatia; the son of Croatian Baron Franjo Jelačić Bužimski, a lieutenant Field Marshal, Austrian mother Anna Portner von Höflein, Jelačić was born in the town of Petrovaradin, a part of the Slavonian Military Frontier of the Habsburg Monarchy and today it is part of Vojvodina, Serbia. He was educated in Vienna at the Theresian Military Academy, where he received a versatile education, showing particular interest in history and foreign languages, he was fluent in all South-Slavic languages, as well as German, Italian and Hungarian. On the 11th of March 1819 Jelačić joined the Austrian army with the rank of lieutenant in the Vinko Freiherr von Knežević Regiment, named for his uncle. On 1 May 1825 he was promoted to first lieutenant, to captain by 1 September 1830 in Karlovac, Croatia.

On 17 October 1835, he led a military campaign against Bosnian Ottoman troops in Velika Kladuša for which he received a medal. He was promoted to major on 20 February 1837 in the Freiherr von Gollner regiment, on the first of May in 1841 to lieutenant colonel in the 1st Croatian Frontier Guard Regiment in Glina, Croatia promoted to colonel on October 18. On 22 March, Jelačić was promoted to major-general, the Sabor elected him as Ban of Croatia; the Sabor declared that the first elections or representatives to the assembly would be held in May 1848. Jelačić was promoted to Lieutenant Field Marshal on 7 April 1848, becoming the commander of all Habsburg troops in Croatia. In 1850 he married countess Sophie von Stockau, daughter of Count Georg Stockau, in Napajedla. Jelačić supported independence for Croatia from the Austrian throne. However, in pursuit of this goal Jelačić sought to support this goal by ingratiating himself with the Austrian throne by supporting Austrian interests in putting down revolutionary movements in northern Italy in 1848 and in opposing the Hungarian Revolution of 1848–1849.

Jelačić's reputation differs in Austria where he was looked upon as a rebel seeking to break up the Austrian Empire, Croatia where he is a national hero, Hungary where he looked up as a traitor to the Hungarian Revolution for independence from Austrian throne. He traveled to Vienna to take oaths to become counsel of Austrian Emperor, Ferdinand I of Austria, but refused to take the oath as Ban of Croatia, because it was a Hungarian dependent territory; the relations between the Kingdom of Hungary and the Austrian Empire deteriorated after the outbreak of the Hungarian Revolution on 15 March 1848. But he took the oath as Ban of Croatia on 5 June 1848; because of the absence of Bishop Juraj Haulik, he took the oath before the Orthodox Patriarch Josif Rajačić. Jelačić, now Ban, supported the Croatian aim to maintain autonomy from the Kingdom of Hungary. Jelačić proceeded to sever all official ties of Croatia from Hungary; the Austrian Imperial Court opposed this act as one of disobedience and separatism, declaring him to be a rebel and the Sabor to be illegitimate.

But the court soon realized Jelačić and his Croatian army were an ally against the newly formed Batthyány Government. Traveling back to Zagreb in April, Jelačić refused to cede to this new government, refused any cooperation, called for elections to the Sabor on 25 March 1848; the Sabor – now acting as the National Assembly – declared the following demands to the Habsburg emperor: The union of all Croatian provinces. Separation from the Kingdom of Hungary. Abolition of serfdom. Full civil rights. Affirmation of the equality of nations. Many of his points about civil rights were part of the Hungarian twelve points, were enacted by the Batthyány Government; the Sabor opposed the "massive nationalist Magyarization politics of the Kingdom of Hungary from the Carpathians to Adria, which the newly formed government represents Lajos Kossuth." On 8 April Jelačić took his banal oath and was appointed a field-marshal-lieutenant and made commander of the Military Frontier. On 19 April 1848 Jelačić proclaimed the union of Croatian provinces, the separation from the Kingdom of Hungary.

At the same time, he proclaimed unconditional loyalty to the Habsburg monarchy. The Croatian Constitution of 24 April 1848 declared "languages of all ethnicities should be inviolable". On serfdom, it was apparent that changing the status of the Croatian peasantry would have to wait until the end of the revolution. Jelačić kept up the institution of the Military Frontier; the people in the region protested to this, but Ban Jelačić quashed the dissent by summary courts martial and by executing many dissenters. In May, Jelačić established the Bansko Vijeće, its scope of authority covered ministerial tasks including Internal Affairs, Justice and Education, Religion and Defense, so this council was acting as a governing body in Croatia. The new Sabor was summoned on 5 June; the Austrian emperor called Jelačić to Innsbruck, to which the Imperial Court had fled, the Emperor there told him that the Croatian and Slavonian troops in the Italian provinces wanted to join forces with those in Croatia, but that this would weaken the forces in Italy.

So Jelačić called on all troops stationed in the Italian provinces to stay put. The Aus
