Bukovina: Austrian "Crownland" #romania


Marc M. Cohen <marccohen@...>
 

Dear All,

I'm afraid I must raise a point of difference with Shel's statement
that Bukovina was part of Galicia.

It is my understanding that Bukovina was never part of the Austrian
Galicia province, but rather had a quasi-limited autonomous status as
an "Austrian Crownland," which was different >from being a province.
Before WWI it was part of Austria, between the wars it was in
Romania, and now it has been divided, with Upper Bukovina in Ukraine
and what's left of Lower Buk in Romania.

Cheers,

Marc
