Summary/Abstract: The article analyzes the activity of the Austrian intellectual of the first half of the XIX century Josef von Hormayr in 1805 — 1809. During the French revolution and Napoleonic wars there began the change of a social and political discourse in Europe and Austria connected with the new state ideologies and practicians who have appeared at this time. One of the reactions was the emergence of the Austrian conservatism which actively appealed to a historical narrative of both the all-Austrian, and regional history in the existing social and political discourse. Collecting a historical narrative, and not only actually Austria, but also the lands which were in the personal union with it under the power of the Habsburg dynasty during this period Josef von Hormayr was engaged, thereby promoting transformation of the idea of Gesamtstaat in official ideology of the Austrian empire formed in 1804. Other intellectuals — supporters of the conservative direction of social thought of Austria also appealed to this narrative, up to disintegration of the Habsburg Empire in 1918.
