the Benedictines (Order of Saint Benedict). In the 12th century, the broader region already had four monasteries, and even more churches. Among those, one of the oldest was the church of ''Saint Mary Rosary'', which stood by the bay in the beginnings of the 13th century. Its name was ''Sancta Maria Roxe'' or ''S. Maria delle Rose'', and in 1251 the bay was named by it ''Portus sanctae Mariae de Rosa''. One of the most important roles in the history of the settlement was the monastery of Saint Laurence, where the Benedictines healed rheumatic illnesses, ascites and other diseases with concentrated salt water and saline mud. In the 1210 the area was overtaken by the Patriarchy of Aquileia. In the 13th century Pirano entered a brief war from December of 1282 to January of 1283 in which it was defeated by the Venetian Republic. thumb right 250px upright Palace Hotel in 1915 (File:Razglednica Portoroža 1915 (3).jpg) During the second Venetian rule, it was, contrary to other towns on the Istrian peninsula, loyal to Venetian rule, and as such gained special privileges within the republic, which in turn caused the local economy to boom. In 1797 Venetian rule came to a close as the Austrian Empire took over the area for a brief period until 1806. From 1806 to 1813 the entire Istrian Peninsula became part of the Illyrian Provinces. A period of economic growth followed during the second Austrian rule, with enlargement of trade and locally important salt pans in nearby Lucia (Lucija) and Sicciole (Sečovlje). In the aftermath of the Great War (World War I), the Treaty of Rapallo (Treaty of Rapallo (1920)) determined the Istrian peninsula to be from that point on a part of the Kingdom of Italy. Under the royal and then fascist rule, the area found itself amidst economic decline and civil conflicts between the populace and the state. In the Second World War, the area hadn't seen much action, although the important industrial hub of Trieste suffered multiple bombings. In the aftermath of the war, the settlement found itself in the United Nations-administered Free Territory of Trieste. After the dissolution of the Trieste state it became a part of Yugoslavia (Socialist Federative Republic of Yugoslavia). http: www.piran-pirano.si zgodovina Economy Economy of Portorož is mainly based on tourism and gaming industry.

Saint-Louis, Senegal

Dakar assumed the role of capital of the French West Africa federation. The colonial institutions set up in the city in the 19th century, such as the Muslim Tribunal and the School for Chiefs’ Sons, were to play important roles in the history of French Africa. Though relatively small in size (population of 10,000 in 1826; 23,000 in 1914, and 39,000 in 1955) Saint-Louis dominated Senegalese politics throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, not least because of its numerous political parties and associations and its independent newspapers. Following independence, when Dakar became sole capital of the country, Saint-Louis slipped into a state of lethargy. As its French population and military departed, many of the town’s shops, offices and businesses closed. This generated a loss of jobs and human potential, and less investment in the economic activities of Saint-Louis, thus causing its economic decline. For some people, however, Saint-Louis' decline was not just limited to its economy, but spread to all aspects of its life as the loss of its past status meant less recognition and lack of interest from the colony’s officials and, after Senegal’s independence, from the Senegalese government. When its most famous political son, the French-educated lawyer Lamine Guèye (Lamine Guèye (politician)), died in 1968, the city lost its strongest proponent. Today, rich in three centuries of history, in cultural background, geography, architecture and other characteristics, Saint-Louis is a bridge between the savanna and the desert, the ocean and the river, tradition and modernity, Islam and Christianity, Europe and Africa. Home to a society with a distinctive lifestyle, Saint-Louis has retained its unique identity. “No one comes without falling in love with the city," proudly say its people who consider Saint-Louis as the birthplace of Senegalese Teranga, the Wolof word for hospitability. Economy Saint-Louis’ economy is a third important, yet critical, facet of its identity. As is supported in the article, Saint Louis has economically declined since the transfer of the Capital of French Western Africa in Dakar. This has caused the dispossession of Saint Louis of all its past economic attributes and is said to have “ … reached its paroxysm in 1960 when the capitol of the independent Senegal was transferred to Dakar”. Saint-Louis, however, has remained an important tourist and trading center championed by French Republican political leader Jules Ferry. Equal rights and citizenship were extended to those peoples who adopted French culture, including primary use of the French language in their lives, wearing Western clothes, and conversion to Christianity. Despite granting French citizenship to the residents of the "Four Communes" (Dakar, Saint-Louis (Saint-Louis, Senegal), Gorée, and Rufisque), most West Africans did not adopt French culture or Christianity. Following World War I, "association" replaced assimilation as the fundamental tenet of the colonial relationships. It was thought that French culture might exist in association with indigenous societies and that these autonomous colonies might freely associate with France in the French Union.

Archduchy of Austria

, Altötting Burghausen , the lands beyond the Inn river for centuries had two important roles: strategically as an eastern defence line against the rising Archduchy of Austria, and economically as arable land for crop farming. In the course of the Bavarian People's Uprising against the occupation by the Habsburg (House of Habsburg) Emperor Joseph I (Joseph I, Holy Roman Emperor), the short-lived Braunau Parliament convened in 1705, an early occurrence of a parliamentary system in the Holy Roman Empire. Upon the death of King Ottokar II (Ottokar II of Bohemia) in the 1278 Battle on the Marchfeld, his widow Kunigunda (Kunigunda of Slavonia) had called in the Brandenburgian troops to lend aid against the army of victorious Rudolph of Habsburg (Rudolph I of Germany). Rudolph retired to Austria (Archduchy of Austria), nevertheless the Brandenburgers soon acted like occupants: they arrested Kunigunda and her seven-year-old son Wenceslaus (Wenceslaus II of Bohemia) at Bezděz Castle and agreed with Rudolph that they would retain the Bohemian rule for the next five years. '''Ulrich von Liechtenstein''' (1200–1275) was a medieval ministerialis and minnesinger (minnesang), author of noted works about how knights and nobles may lead more virtuous lives, and a powerful leader in the 13th century Eastern Alps. He was born in 1200 at Murau in the Duchy of Styria, located in the present-day State of Austria (Austria). His family, a cadet branch of the Bavarian Aribonids named after Liechtenstein Castle near Judenburg, was not affiliated with the Austrian (Archduchy of Austria) House of Liechtenstein (Princely Family of Liechtenstein). thumb left 120px Coat of arms of the Gessler family (File:Blason Henri Gessler, Kammermeister.svg) Indeed, a Gessler family of ministeriales (Ministerialis) is documented from the 13th century onwards; however at Wiggwil (Beinwil (Freiamt)) in the Aargau region, the original homeland of the Habsburgs and the basis for their rise after the extinction of the Swabian House of Hohenstaufen. The Gesslers profited from the election of Count Rudolph of Habsburg (Rudolph I of Germany) as King of the Romans in 1273 and his acquisition of the Austria (Archduchy of Austria)n and Styria (Duchy of Styria)n duchies after the victory over King Ottokar II of Bohemia at the 1278 Battle on the Marchfeld. In the late 14th century one Hermann Gessler was ''Landvogt'' of the Habsburg dukes at Grüningen Castle in Zürich (Canton of Zürich). His stern measures against the peasant population made the name ''Gessler'' an epitome of tyranny. death_date of the Leitha river. The Lordship of Tarasp Castle was established in the 11th century and for centuries claimed by the Bishopric of Chur and the Counts of Tyrol (County of Tyrol). After the Lords of Tarasp had become extinct, their estates were a Tyrolean fief from 1239 on. Under the rule of the Habsburg (House of Habsburg) archdukes of Austria (Archduchy of Austria), also Counts of Tyrol since 1363, Tarasp from 1464 on was an Austrian exclave (Enclave and exclave) inside the Free State of the Three Leagues (Three Leagues), an associate (Old Swiss Confederacy#Associates) of the Old Swiss Confederacy. In 1687 Emperor Leopold I of Habsburg (Leopold I, Holy Roman Emperor) granted the Lordship of Tarasp to the Princes of Dietrichstein as an immediate (Imperial immediacy) territory of the Holy Roman Empire. Nothing is known of John's early life. In 1307 he became abbot of the Cistercian monastery of Viktring (Viktring Abbey), near Klagenfurt in the Duchy of Carinthia. He was later both chaplain and confidential secretary to the Carinthian duke Henry of Gorizia-Tyrol (Henry of Bohemia). Upon the duke's death in 1335, John journeyed to the city of Linz at the request of the Henry's daughter, Margarete Maultasch (Margaret, Countess of Tyrol), to defend her claims to her father's estates before the Emperor Louis IV of Wittelsbach (Louis IV, Holy Roman Emperor). Nevertheless the two Austrian (Archduchy of Austria) dukes, Albert II of Habsburg (Albert II, Duke of Austria) and his brother Otto the Merry (Otto, Duke of Austria), took possession of the contested Carinthian lands in her stead, and thereby became the lords of Viktring Abbey. They too learned to value the abbot's abilities and consulted him in all important government matters. He frequently stayed at their residence in Vienna as a confidential secretary until 1341, when he withdrew to the quiet of his monastery to write a history of his own time. The accord dictated that the Archduchy of Austria (Principality of Austria above the Enns (Upper Austria)) would receive the Bavarian (History of Bavaria) lands east of the Inn (Inn (river)) river in compensation, a region then called "Innviertel", stretching from the Bishopric of Passau (Roman Catholic Diocese of Passau) to the northern border of the Archbishopric of Salzburg. However, one of the requirements was that Austria would recognize the Prussian claims to the Franconian (Franconian Circle) margraviates of Ansbach (Principality of Ansbach) and Bayreuth (Principality of Bayreuth), ruled in personal union by Margrave Christian Alexander (Christian Frederick Charles Alexander, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach) from the House of Hohenzollern. Prussia finally purchased both margraviates in 1791. The Electorate of Saxony received a sum of six million guilders (florins) from Bavaria in exchange of its inheritance claims. With the accession of Elector Charles Theodore, the electorates of Bavaria and the County Palatine of the Rhine (Electoral Palatinate) (i.e. the territories in the Rhenish Palatinate (Palatinate (region)) and the Upper Palatinate) were under the united rule of the House of Wittelsbach. Their electoral votes were combined into one per a provision in the earlier Treaty of Westphalia in 1648, thereby reducing the number of electorates in the Holy Roman Empire to eight. The Innviertel, except for a short time during the Napoleonic Wars, remained with Upper Austria up to today.
