In Austria, Baron Alexander von Bach, the Minister of the Interior and the architect of the new municipal law, fell from power amid a swelling financial and political crisis. Over the following two years, Francis Joseph was forced to concede, among other things, a new constitution, a new parliament and the reconvening of the diets.
