Long Description:
Hans Kudlich is noted for being a leader of the movement to end the feudal policies of the Austrian government. The Austrian government enforced a law known as the Robot Patent which required farmers to provide labor without compensation to the noble landowners. Kudlich was elected to the Austrian Reichstag (parliament) in early 1848 at the age of 25. He introduced a bill to end forced servitude and the bill was approved by the legislature.

The parliament was dissolved by force on March 7, 1849 when the rebellion that had briefly taken control of Vienna was crushed. Kudlich up to the time of the dissolution of the parliament had worked to rally support for the revolution. After the dissolution of the parliament he fled first to Germany and then to Switzerland.
