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. 220.127.116.11 (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)
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 ?
They are the same. A margrave is (G. margraf) is a march-graf. "Graf" means "count", but there are several types of them in the titular edifice: Burggraf (burg-, or town-, -count; pfalzgraf, ('palace-count') and so on.

There may be a difference in the Italian Peninsula, I see. Hans Delbrueck ("History of the Art of War Volume III: Medieval Warfare, p. 331) noted some margravates in the medieval Italian communes that weren't particularly in what the French, English or Germans would consider 'borderlands'.

"but owing to demarches by Great Britain"
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...
