1867 December 21, AUSTRIAN AUSGLEICH (Constitution)
The term Ausgleich referred to the compromise between Austria and Hungary
allowing for a dual monarchy. As part of the agreement, Hungary had to agree to enact the civil reforms already in place in Austria. These reforms became the Magna Carta for minority races in the Austrian Empire.
It included the right to hold office as well as freedom of occupation,
settlement, and religion. The original constitution, which was issued in
1610, had been annulled a few years later.
