I have removed the data from the national census on the number of the slovene population because the census was largely boycoted by the slovenes and is thus irrelevant. 153.5.62.201 (talk) 00:21, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

The census is very relevant, as it contrasts sharply with unofficial data. You may add an explanation about the boycott. --Eleassar my talk 18:14, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

March ?[edit]

It states here In A.D. 745 the former Slavic principality of Carantania became a margraviate of the Frankish Empire. ... The March of Carinthia was created in 889 by ..

So is a margraviavate a different political entity to a march ?

"but owing to demarches by Great Britain"[edit]

I've been trying with a couple of sentences to make the English flow more 'normally' to my (more or less) English ear. I got stuck on "demarches". Does anyone know, please, what would have been the original word in (I think, from the source quoted) the original German language text? Mit Dank im Voraus...

"croatian wording"[edit]

I added Croatian wording for the same reason there is Slovene wording in Burgenland. 158.143.153.67 (talk)

Carinthia (state)CarinthiaCarinthia (state) is the WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, it has double the page views of all the other topics combined:

Carinthia (state) has been viewed 21584 times in the last 90 days. [1]

Carinthia (Slovenia) has been viewed 1490 times in the last 90 days. [2]

Carinthia Statistical Region has been viewed 1076 times in the last 90 days. [3]

March of Carinthia has been viewed 1146 times in the last 90 days. [4]

Duchy of Carinthia has been viewed 5789 times in the last 90 days. [5]

RMS Carinthia (1925) has been viewed 1121 times in the last 90 days. [6]

RMS Carinthia (1955) has been viewed 1222 times in the last 90 days. [7]

21584 vs 11844, satisfies WP:PRIMARYTOPIC, especially as March of Carinthia and Duchy of Carinthia are not likely targets when searching just Carinthia. Zarcadia (talk) 20:32, 13 March 2015 (UTC)

  • I disagree that "Duchy of Carinthia [is] not [a] likely target when searching just Carinthia". The duchy was a reasonably important state in Europe for nearly 1000 years and is often called simply "Carinthia" in sources (see Google Books for examples[8]). —  AjaxSmack  23:02, 13 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Support; I would not be concerned about losing the importance of the Duchy when there is an entire section about it in the history of the state. That makes this almost a WP:DABCONGEO situation. bd2412 T 15:01, 14 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Support - seems like a logical primary topic claim Red Slash 17:26, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
  • Support. The Austrian state is definitely the primary topic. -- Necrothesp (talk) 15:23, 18 March 2015 (UTC)
