The federalism of František Palacký (1798–1876) was firstly influenced by statistical data on the population numbers of the individual nations and nationalities within the Habsburg monarchy. There was also the concept of Austro-Slavism, which emphasized the cultural, demographic and economic importance of the Slavs living in this state. During the revolution of 1848–1849, he linked this with an Austro-federalism, though he failed to acquire sufficient political support. This was also the case after 1860 when the Czech politician tried in vain to win the support of France and Russia. At this point it was obvious that his Austro-federalism lacked the sufficient coalition potential to succeed.
