Apropo Stephen R note on lack of teaching of geography- From a text printed 1851, when it was part of the curriculum. At the time, the Austrian Empire was a great one.
"The Austrian Empire is composed of parts of Italy, Germany, ancient Poland, and the whole of the Hungarian states. Austrian Italy embraces Lombardy and Venice, called the Lombardo-Venitian kingdom. Austrian Germany comprising the western part of Austria, embraces Bohemia, Moravia, Austrian Silesia, Austria proper, Styria, Illyria, and the Tyrol. Austrian Poland, called the kingdom of Gallacia, constitutes the northeastern part of Austria; and the Hungarian States, comprising Hungary, Transylvania, Sclavoica, Croatia and Dalmatia, constitute the central, southeastern and northern parts."
