      No I did not say that Galicia was Hungarian. I said that the geographical
      area known as Galicia was a territory within the political entity known as
      the Kingdom of Hungary.



      The border is very well defined on my "Central Europe in 1812" as well as
      the map of "Central Europe, 1815-1866" which shows both the Empire of
      Austria, Kingdom of Prussia and the Kingdom of Hungary. The source of the
      maps is: "Historical Atlas" by William R. Shepherd, Professor of History in
      Columbia University, Fifth Edition Revised, 1926, New York, Henry Holt and
      Company, printed in Leipzig, Germany. The same maps also appear in the
      Eighth Edition, 1956 published by Barnes & Noble, Inc. New York, printed in
      the U.S.A.

      Nancy,

      After rechecking my 1815-1866 map of Central Europe, the Empire of Austria
      included Bohemia, Moravia, part of Silesia and a small portion of Galicia
      but NO part of Slovakia. Slovakia north to the Carpathian Mountains was all
      part of Kingdom of Hungary. The area north of the Carpathian Mountains up
      to the Vistula River was all called Galicia, all of which was in Kingdom of
      Hungary.

      Frank,

      In your entry for 1867-1918, while all of present-day Slovakia was in
      the Austro-Hungarian Empire, part of it was in the Republic of
      Austria and part was in the Kingdom of Hungary. You may want to
      include both parts to be more accurate.

      Also, where you mention the addition of Ruthenia in 1919-1920, what
      are you considering Ruthenia? Is it Sub-Carpathia (or Trans-
      Carpathia) or part of Ukraine?
