  Kurt Schuschnigg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Kurt Schuschnigg (14 December 1897 in Riva del Garda, Austria-Hungary – 18 November 1977 in Mutters, Austria; Kurt von Schuschnigg until 1919) was an Austrian politician who in 1934 succeeded the assassinated Engelbert Dollfuss as dictator of Austria, as leader of the regime often called Austrofascism.
Schuschnigg attempted to regain control of the situation by arranging for a plebiscite to be held on 13 March.
However, the use of the particle "von", which denotes nobility, is an anachronism for the time when he was active as a politician, since nobility was abolished in Austria in 1919.

Schuschnigg's political survival directly depended on Italian support for an independent Austria, but by 1935 Mussolini was already moving toward accommodation with Hitler and began to advise Schuschnigg to do the same.

Von Trapp's Austrian nation is one of polyglot Mitteleuropa, not of a Greater-Germany and it is this historical legitimism of the post-1918 Austrian state that von Trapp as aristocratic/conservative element of the Ständestaat locates his patriotism.
Von Trapp, who represents the imperial patriarchy, is shown at the head of the family table, the microcosm of the nation.
Von Trapp's identity is shifted after the Anschluss: the order regarding his naval commission comes from the center of the new Greater German Reich, Berlin, (Vienna having been degraded to a provincial capital) and it requests he report to Bremerhaven, a Protestant northern German port city that has little in common with Terra Austria.
