This chapter presents an essay on the domestic political and cultural presuppositions of Austria's governmental experiment following the revolutionary events of 1848–49. It argues that this absolutism suffered not only from alienating too many ancestral supporters of the dynasty, but also from mixing ideologies. The focus on the maintenance of established Austrian priorities was inconsistent with the new goals of a German national kind given that the experiment was heavily influenced from other parts of Germany.
