 The European revolution of 1848
The nationalistic leader Kossuth was prominent at Diets of Pressburg (Bratislava) of 1840 and 1844 in securing the position of the Magyar tongue as the official language, and as the language of public education.

The Latin tongue had been somewhat accessible to the other ethnicities represented at Pressburg as it was often represented in classical traditions of education besides being a prominent language of religion and scholarship.
