Abstract

The Hungarian conservatives were struck by the promulgation of the Imperial Constitution of 4th March 1849 out of the blue. Although it ensured constitutionalism, individual political rights and the equality of nations, the highly centralised nature of the constitution’s proclamation meant that Hungary’s privileges within the empire were largely abolished and the country was reduced to the level of a province. The constitution was never introduced in Hungary, and its provisions were only intended to be put into effect after the revolution had been crushed as soon as possible. The state of siege, which had been planned as a temporary measure after the imperial victory over the War of Independence, was ended by the imperial patent of 31th December 1851, which abolished constitutionalism and introduced open imperial absolutism in the empire. However, by March 1849, the new imperial constitution appeared to be a very serious and lasting act. The aim of this paper is to examine how Hungarian conservatives interacted with the imperial side during the War of Independence, why the provisions of the new imperial constitution concerning Hungary took them by surprise, and how they received the Olmütz (Olomouc) constitution.
