The author analyses the political agency of Ivan Kukuljević-Sakcinski, Croatian political and cultural public worker, in the period between 1843 and 1867. Before the Revolution of 1848–1849 Kukuljević defended the municipal rights of the Triune Kingdom of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia, and criticised the politics of Hungarian hegemony. During the Revolution Kukuljević advocated the independence of Croatia from Hungary and its linking with Austrian lands on the principles of Austroslavism and federalism. At the time of Bach’s absolutism he was prevented from pursuing politics, but he worked on collecting historical documents and the beginnings of modern historiography in Croatia. After the renewal of constitutional life, he was a member of the Ban’s Conference and the Great Župan of Zagreb County from the beginning of 1861 to the summer of 1867. He supported Art. XLI/1861 in the Croatian Diet of 1861: this spoke of the legal and real severing of all connections between Hungary and the Triune Kingdom, except in the person of the king, and made negotiations with the Hungarians conditional upon their acceptance of Croatian autonomy and territorial integrity. He also supported Prica’s Declaration, which in principle accepted the existence of common affairs with the Austrian lands, but rejected any sending of the representatives to the Viennese Imperial Council (Reichsrat). Kukuljević was later a member of the Popular Independentist Party (Narodno-samostalna stranka), which tried to achieve an agreement with Vienna before that could be done by the Hungarians. He defended Croatian political autonomy and integrity also in the Diet of 1865–1867. He was removed from the position of Great Župan due to his political and anti-Dualist orientation.
