      What citizenship? Palacky was a subject of the Habsburg Monarchy, meaning -- Ben should have called Palacky a "Habsburg"?

      Ben spoke of his ethnicity, not citizenship, and was perfectly correct to say Palacky was not Slovak. Palacky was Moravian (Czech). His Moravian parents, from the tiny Lutheran minority there, sent him to study in Slovakia, because there were no Lutheran high schools and colleges in the Czech lands. Palacky returned to the Czech lands after graduation.
