German National Party (Austria)

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The German National Party (DnP) was founded in 1891 as a direct successor organization to the former German National Movement and was thus a split from the Schönerer Movement. It was an important political party in Austria-Hungary and was close to the Greater German Party . In 1891 the party was headed by Otto Steinwender and sent 18 members to the Vienna Reichsrat .

A long-standing German national party member was Jakob Lutschounig , a member of the Reichsrat and later a member of the Provisional National Assembly .
