Biography Biography Starčević was born in the village of Žitnik near Gospić, a small town in the Military Frontier
Military Frontier
within Austria-Hungary, to a family of a Catholic father Jakov and an Orthodox mother Milica (nee Čorak).[1] Starčević attended elementary school in Klanac. Since the age of 13, he was educated by his uncle Šime Starčević who gave him his first lessons in Croatian and Latin. Šime Starčević was a pastor in Gospić
Gospić
and a well-known writer and linguist. In 1845, he graduated from Classical Gymnasium in Zagreb. During high school, Starčević further improved his knowledge of Latin, German, Hungarian, Greek and Italian. He then briefly continued his studies at the seminary in Senj, but soon moved to Pest in 1845 to attend a Roman Catholic theological seminary he eventually graduated from in 1846.[2] Upon his graduation Starčević returned to Croatia
Croatia
and continued studying theology in Senj. Rather than becoming a priest, he decided to engage in secular pursuits and started working at Ladislav Šram's law firm in Zagreb.[3] He then tried to get an academic post with the University of Zagreb
Zagreb
but was unsuccessful, so he remained in Šram's office until 1861 when he was appointed chief notary of Fiume County. He was also a member of the committee of Matica ilirska, a Croatian cultural society connected with the Illyrian movement, in the Historical Society and in the editorial board of Neven, a literary magazine. In 1861, he was appointed the chief notary of the Fiume (Rijeka) county. That same year, he was elected to the Croatian Parliament
Croatian Parliament
as the representative of Fiume and founded the original Croatian Party of Rights with Eugen Kvaternik. Starčević would be reelected to the parliament in 1865, 1871, and from 1878 to his death. In 1862, when Fiume was implicated in participation in protests against the Austrian Empire, he was suspended and sentenced to one month in prison as an enemy of the regime. When he was released, Starčević returned to Šram's office, where he remained until 11 October 1871, when he was arrested again, this time on the occasion of the Rakovica Revolt. The revolt was launched by Kvaternik, and who had become convinced that a political solution of the type Starčević called for was not possible. While the revolt drew several hundred men, both Croats
Croats
and Serbs, it was soon quashed by Imperial Austrian troops. The Croatian Party of Rights
Croatian Party of Rights
was abolished. Starčević was released after two months in prison. In his old age, he moved to Starčević House (Starčevićev dom), built for him by the Croatian people in 1895. He died in his house less than a year later, aged 73.[4] According to his wish, he was buried in the Church of St Mirko in the Zagreb
Zagreb
suburb of Šestine. His bust was made by Ivan Rendić. On his deathbed, he requested that no monuments be raised to his honor, but his statue was put up in front of Starčević House in 1998.

Political activity

Starčević's political work Iztočno pitanje (English: Eastern Question) published in 1899

After being banned from practising law in 1857, Starčević travelled to Russia
Russia
where he hoped he would gather support from his country's eastern rival. When this failed, he travelled to France, pinning his hopes on French emperor Napoleon III. While in Paris, he published his work La Croatie et la confédération italienne, considered by some to be the precursor to his Party of Rights' political program.[citation needed] In 1859, the Austrian Empire
Austrian Empire
was defeated in the Second Italian War of Independence, during which time Starčević returned to Croatia. Austria
Austria
lost control over Italy, and Austria's weakening status in the world paved the way for Starčević's career.[5] As the chief notary in Fiume in 1861, Starčević wrote "the four petitions of the Rijeka
Rijeka
county". He pointed out that Croatia
Croatia
needed to determine its relationships with Austria
Austria
and Hungary
Hungary
through international agreements. He demanded the reintegration of the Croatian lands, the large kingdom of Croatia
Croatia
of old (the medieval Kingdom of Croatia), the homeland of one people, with the same blood, language, past and (God willing) future.[citation needed] On that ideological basis, he founded the Party of Rights
Party of Rights
with his school friend Eugen Kvaternik
Eugen Kvaternik
in 1861. That party demanded an independent Croatia
Croatia
independent of Austria
Austria
and Hungary. Starčević's famous phrase was: "Ni s Bečom ni s Peštom" ("Neither with Vienna nor with Pest")[6] Starčević was the only parliamentary representative who agreed with Kvaternik's draft constitution of 26 June 1861. He advocated the termination of the Military Frontier
Military Frontier
and persuaded parliament to pass on 5 August 1861 the decision annulling any joint business with Austria. He advocated the resolution of Bosnian issues by reforms and cooperation between the people and the nobility. Starčević believed that Bosniaks
Bosniaks
were "the best Croats",[7] and claimed that "Bosnian Muslims are a part of the Croatian people and of the purest Croatian blood".[8] From his first writings of 1861, until his last speech, Starčević, for 30 years, has tirelessly tried to prove that the main and lasting thing was to get rid of Austrian intimidation and that for the Croatian people there was no life or happier future "until it's under Austria-Hungary." He took up the hostile stance towards the "mindset called Austria, in which governments and rulers (...) conspired against the peoples." He considered House of Habsburg
House of Habsburg
to be the greatest enemy of the Croatian people. With the speech he held in the Parliament on 26 June 1861, Starčević initiated the campaign aimed at rehabilitation of Petar Zrinski
Petar Zrinski
and Fran Krsto Frankopan.[9] Starčević saw the main Croatian enemy in the Habsburg Monarchy. He believed in the ability of the Croatian people to govern themselves and that sovereignty grew from the nation, the people, and not from the ruler that governed "By the Grace of God". "God and Croats" was the essence of Starčević's political ideas. Under the influence of the ideas of the French Revolution, he fought against feudalism and advocated for the democratization of political life. In politics, he relied on townsmen, wealthier peasantry, and intellectuals[10] Literary and linguistic work

in Zagreb

Starčević wrote literary criticism, short stories, newspaper articles, philosophical essays, plays and political satire. He was also a translator. His travelogue From Lika
Lika
was published in Kušlan's magazine Slavenski Jug on 22 October 1848. He wrote four plays in the period 1851–52, but only the Village Prophet has been preserved. His translation of Anacreon
Anacreon
from Ancient Greek
Ancient Greek
was published in Danica in 1853. His critical review (1855) of Đurđević's Pjesni razlike was described by the Croatian literary historian Branko Vodnik as "our first genuine literary essay about older Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik
literature". His opus shows an affinity with practical philosophy, which he calls "the science of life". Josip Horvat said: "His literary work from 1849 to the end of 1853 made Ante Starčević
Ante Starčević
the most prolific and original Croatian writer along with Mirko Bogović." In 1850, inspired by Ljudevit Gaj, Starčević started working on the manuscript of Istarski razvod, a Croatian document from 1325. He transcribed the text from the Glagolitic alphabet
Glagolitic alphabet
to the Latin alphabet, analysed it and published it in 1852. In the foreword, young Starčević elaborated his linguistic ideas, specifically that the mixture of all three Croatian dialects (Shtokavian, Chakavian and Kajkavian) and the Krajina dialect, with its 600-year history, was the Croatian language. Starčević accepted the etymological orthography and used the ekavian accent for his entire life, considering it the heir of the old Kajkavian. He did not use assibilation, coarticulation nor assimilation, accepted in Croatian orthography since Ljudevit Gaj. His orthography was adopted by the Ustaše
Ustaše
regime in Independent State of Croatia. His language is a "synthetic" form of Croatian, never used before or after him, most similar to the Ozalj
Ozalj
idiom of Petar Zrinski, whom he probably never read.[11] In that period, in the Call for Subscriptions to the Croatian Grammar (8 December 1851) he stated his opposition to the Vienna Language Agreement of 1850 and the linguistic concept of Vuk Stefanović Karadžić. He continued his dispute with the followers of Karadžić in a series of articles published in 1852. His opposition to Karadžić's work was based in utter denial of the Serbs
Serbs
as the nation, their language, their culture and history.[12] He also did not recognize the Serbs, Slovenes, Bosniaks
Bosniaks
as separate nations or groups, referring to them all as Croats.[13] This was not a popular or widely accepted theory; educated people headed by Strossmayer and Gaj supported Karadžić. It was demonstrated publicly immediately after Karadžić's death – when Croatian Parliament
Croatian Parliament
(Sabor) collected a considerable amount of money in order to erect a monument to honor Karadžić in Croatia
Croatia
and the Court chancellor Ivan Mažuranić got the Viennese Imperial Court to financially support Karadžić's widow.[14] When Srbski dnevnik from Novi Sad
Novi Sad
published an article saying that "Croatians write in Serbian", Starčević wrote in response: (...) Instead of claiming that the Croats
Croats
use anything else but the Croatian language, those writers who consider themselves Serbs
Serbs
(or whatever they like) would do well to write in the educated and pure Croatian language, like some of them are already doing, and they can call their language Coptic for all I care. (...) He published the reply as an unsigned article in Narodne novine, the newspaper of Ljudevit Gaj, so the Serbian side attacked Gaj, wrongly attributing the article to him. Starčević subsequently proclaimed he was the author, not Gaj, who cared to maintain good relations with Serbia, distanced himself from his friend.[11] Starčević was the only Croatian politician from his era respected by writer Miroslav Krleža.[15] Krleža used to compare Starčević's struggles to those of Don Quijote's.[15] For Miroslav Krleža Starčević has been the most intelligent Croatian politician.[16] Krleža, however, did not pay much attention to political aspects of his works.[17] In 1869, he published an affirmative article on the Ottoman Empire
Ottoman Empire
and Islam.[18] Racism and anti-Semitism According to Croatian historians, Mirjana Gross
Mirjana Gross
and Ivo Goldstein, Starčević was a racist and an anti-Semite.[19][20] His understanding of the basic human rights and the way he linked them to the civil liberties were extremely primitive and selective. For example, Starčević criticized the socialism as "unshaped" and he was delighted by the colonialism and claimed that " Algeria
Algeria
should be densely populated by a few million of happy Frenchmen and not to allow to have one hundred fifty thousand of them against two and half million of Arabs".[19][20] Starčević had based his ideological views on writings of those ancient Greek writers who thought that some people, by their very nature, are slaves, for they had "just half of the human mind" and, for that reason, they "shall be governed by people of the human nature". He spoke as of the animal breeds and used the word "breed" to mark the people and nations which he saw as cursed and lower ranked races.[19][20] He wrote a whole tractate about the Jews
Jews
that included the following: " Jews
Jews
... are the breed, except a few, without any morality and without any homeland, the breed of which every unit strives to its personal gain, or to its relatives' gain. To let the Jews
Jews
to participate in public life is dangerous: throw a piece of mud in a glass of the clearest water – then all the water will be puddled. That way the Jews
Jews
spoiled and poisoned the French people too much".[19][20] For Starčević, there was a race worse than the Jews. For him, the "Slavoserb" notion was firstly of a political nature: the "Slavoserbs" are his political opponents who "sold themselves to a foreign rule". Then all those who favorably look on the South Slavs
South Slavs
unity not regarding them (the South Slavs) as the Croats.[19][20] Later, and with years, Starčević more and more marked the "Slavoserbs" as a separate ethnic group, or – as he used to say the "breed", ranked, as humans, lower than the Jews: "The Jews
Jews
are less harmful than the Slavoserbs. For the Jews
Jews
care for themselves and their people ... but the Slavoserbs are always for the evil: if they cannot gain a benefit, then they tend to harm the good or just affair, or to harm those who are for the affair." – he wrote once.[19][20] Further, he claimed that the injustice was done to different "cursed breeds" what spoiled those breeds even more and made them "to be vengeful against their oppressors". As a convinced racist, he stressed that to the "cursed breeds", i.e. to the lower races should not be given any role in the public life.[19][20] As an aged man, he made the Serbs
Serbs
identical to the "Slavoserb breed" and mocked them for their historic defeats- which provoked negative reactions even in his "Party of Rights". On that occasion, the Party member Erazmo Barčić (1894) described Starčević's mockery and racism as "throwing mud at people and primitive cheeky invectives".[20] When once facing with negative reactions to his open racism, he temporarily retreated. Accordingly, he wrote an article in Sloboda, issue of March 23, 1883: The main thing is this: everybody should work for the people and the homeland, and let them call themselves as they wish... We have disputes and dissensions only because they are supported and strengthened from the outside... We believe that hungry and cold Serbs
Serbs
and Croats
Croats
feel the same... Therefore, everybody can assume the name of Hottentots, every person can choose their own name, as long as we are all free and happy!... Starčević's attitudes were further fully elaborated by Ivo Pilar [under pseudonym L. von Südland][21] The same book was translated into Croatian language
Croatian language
in the year of 1943, by Pavelić's regime, as one of the tenets of his Ustaše
Ustaše
and his Independent State of Croatia.[22][23] This work was reprinted in 1990 in Croatia. In the preface to this edition, Dr. Vladimir Veselica, a Zagreb
Zagreb
University professor, expresses his enthusiasm that the author had given "relevant answers" at the highest intellectual level. A quotation from this book is: " it was not without reason that I tried to show how the Serbs
Serbs
today are dangerous for their ideas and their racial composition, how a bent for conspiracies, revolutions and coups is in their blood."[24] Starčević and the Catholic Church

statehood idea

Starčević espoused secularist views: he advocated the separation of church and state, and argued that faith should not guide the political life, and that the insistence on religious differences is harmful to the national interests. He sharply criticized the Roman Catholic clergy in Croatia
Croatia
due to the fact that it sided with his political opponents. He saw the Croatian Catholic clergy as servants of foreign masters who were instrumental in enslaving and destroying Croatian people on behalf of Austrian and Hungarian interests. At the same time, Starčević was not an atheist: he believed that a civilized society could not exist without faith in God and the immortal soul, which is why he saw atheists as untrustworthy.[25] He and the bishop of Đakovo, Josip Juraj Strossmayer, disagreed about Croatian politics. Strossmayer was sympathetic towards panslavic unity of South Slavs
South Slavs
(future Yugoslavia). Starčević, on the other hand, demanded an independent Croatian state and opposed any solution that would include Croats
Croats
within some other multi-ethnic country. According to Starčević, the possible union of Croats
Croats
with other South Slavs had no future because of greater Serbian expansionism.[citation needed] Rivalry between Starčević and Strossmayer has been described in the travel writing book Vidici i putovi (Sights and ways) by Antun Gustav Matoš. Legacy Croatian writer Antun Gustav Matoš
Antun Gustav Matoš
wrote a tractate about him. In it, he proclaims Starčević as the greatest Croat and the greatest patriot in the 19th century. He also describes Starčević as the greatest Croatian thinker.[26] For his political and literary work, Starčević is commonly called Father of the Nation (Otac domovine) among Croats, a name first used by Eugen Kvaternik
Eugen Kvaternik
while Starčević was still alive. His portrait is depicted on the obverse of the Croatian 1000 kuna banknote, issued in 1993.[27] Many streets and squares are named after Starčević; in 2008, a total of 203 streets in Croatia
Croatia
were named after him, making him the sixth most common person eponym of streets in the country.[28] There are also schools are named after him. Most right wing parties in Croatia claim his politics as their legacy. See also
