Summary/Abstract: Throughout the occupation, Bosnia and Herzegovina found itself in an exceptional position, specific in its state-legal status as well as in militarystrategic importance for the Austro-Hungarian war plans. Shortly after the Sarajevo assassination, the declaration of war and the offensive against Serbia, gave the Austro-Hungarian authorities a justification to dissmis all social organizations, to ban the press and prevent any sociopolitical activity in the occupied areas, soon followed by abolition of the Bosnian Parliament. Obviously, the aim was to achieve complete isolation of Bosnia and Herzegovina from the events that affected the Balkans and Europe and especially from the revolutionary ideas, which were already sprouting, captivating the moods of the masses. All efforts to suppress any spreading of revolutionary, socialist, Bolshevik and communist ideas have failed, but precisely these ideas have found fertile ground thus making Bosnia and Herzegovina the initial point of the wider Yugoslav movement. A little over a year after the audience with the emperor, the “South Slav question” was resolved by the creation of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes under the rule of the Karadjordjevic dynasty.
