On history | 1918–1920

With the end of World War I, the multi-ethnic state that was the Habsburg monarchy came to an end. Several nation states were formed, demanding new borders, and one of them was the young state of the Serbs, Croats and Slovenes. On 7 November 1918, the State of the Slovenes, Croats and Serbs moved from demands to action and began with the occupation of Carinthia. Military resistance drew international attention, and the signing of the State Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye led to the plebiscite of 10 October 1920.
