Prime Minister Felix was also a representative of the Austrian Hawk Faction, and he agreed with Franz's views.

The Hungary issue would have to be resolved sooner or later, and compromise was not going to solve the problem. Better to suffer short-term pain than long-term agony, might as well let the Hungarians rebel and directly use military force to resolve the issue.

Historically, Austria did just that, but the Vienna Government's efforts weren't thorough, ultimately sparing the nobility.

Although this gained the support of the nobility class, it also lost the opportunity to thoroughly resolve the Hungarian issue. Franz naturally intended to learn from this lesson.

During this period, the Hungarian nationality had not yet formed. The so-called Hungarian nationality at that time only consisted of those five hundred thousand people with vested interests, while the remaining thirteen million plus had no sense of nationality.
