What was the extent of significance of the national movement of a small nation, living almost in its entirety in the Austrian half of the state where it constituted barely 4.5 percent of the entire population, in the eyes of the Viennese government, the joint Council of Ministers of the Habsburg Monarchy and the emperor, the elderly Franz Joseph and the dynamic, young, yet inexperienced Charles? What was the role of this movement as a part of the Yugoslav movement in the course of war, as the crisis of the multinational state aggravated increasingly and eventually led mostly due to the national question to its decline? The presented work aims to answer all these and similar questions. The author intends to achieve a more differentiated reflection of the national issues of the Habsburg Monarchy in WWI, since Austrian historiography tends to provide a somewhat narrow viewing field that is characterised by a distinct mark of the centre, i.e. Vienna.
