 Styria (duchy) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Duchy of Styria (German: Herzogtum Steiermark, Slovenian Štajerska) was a duchy of the Holy Roman Empire until its dissolution in 1806, and a crownland of Austria-Hungary until its dissolution in 1918.
When Styria came under the hegemony of Charlemagne as a part of Karantania (Carinthia), erected as a border territory against the Avars and Slavs, there was a large influx of Bavarii and other Christianized Germanic peoples, whom the bishops of Salzburg and the patriarchs of Aquileia kept faithful to Rome.
During the reign of Margrave Ottokar IV (1164-92) Styria was raised to a duchy by the Emperor Frederick Barbarossa, in 1180 after the fall of Henry the Lion of Bavaria.

Jakob Bithner was a Lutheran witch-hunter in the Austrian Habsburg duchy of Styria during the late sixteenth century.
In his new capacity, Bithner sent a series of reports to the Styrian estates outlining his interests in "eradicating all manifestations of magic and superstition, and described his involvement in no fewer than twenty-three of the thirty-nine known cases of witchcraft between 1578 and 1600" (Kern 326).
He believed these witches were particularly active among the vagabond groups, saying that "not only did the marauding mercenaries wander from time to time in the land, but so did other dangerous persons, who caused profanation with robbery, sorcery and similar vices, and who gave themselves entirely over to indolence" (Kern 329).

It is also called Lower Styria, or Spodnja Štajerska (German Untersteiermark), as opposed to Upper Styria, a term applied to the federal state of Austria by Slovenians.
(In Austria, the term Upper Styria (Obersteiermark) is applied only the northern parts of that state.) This reflects the division of Styria in 1918, when Austria-Hungary was dissolved.

In the Habsburg hereditary duchy of Styria, German National political and cultural figures such as Rosegger and Svoboda helped lay the foundations of an aggressive, racist, even fascist movement that displayed remarkable and fateful affinities to Adolf Hitler's National Socialism.
The occupation and "re-Germanization" of Lower Styria occurred under their direction, with little interference from Berlin and according to elaborate plans they had developed in Graz during the 1930s.
Before 1918, and between 1941 and 1945, the duchy belonged to a single country, yet contained two nations in the making (perhaps three, depending on whether one sees Germans and Austrians in Styria as distinct nations or the same nation at different points in time).
