Pavao Rauch Wikipedia
Baron Pavao Rauch de Nyék (20 February 1865, Zagreb – 29 November 1933, Martijanec) was a Croatian politician who served as Ban (viceroy) of Croatia-Slavonia between 1908 and 1910.
His was the son of Levin Rauch. Pavao Rauch was appointed as vice-roy on 8 January 1908. Ten thousand protesters met Rauch upon his arrival in Zagreb on 15 January, hurling abuse and throwing spoiled eggs and pebbles at him. From the very beginning of Rauch’s rule, the Croato-Serbian Coalition announced that it would refuse to co-operate in any manner with the new unionist vice-roy.
After the Croatian Parliament (Sabor) had been disbanded on 12 March 1908 because of its refusal to co-operate with and the insults it directed at the Vice-Roy, Pavao Rauch ruled through decrees and civil servants.
Despite all opposition predictions, Rauch remained in power for two years. On 5 February 1910, he received the King’s letter of dismissal. Nikola Tomašić had been immediately appointed as new vice-roy.
