Fran Miklošič Honored on Slovenia Postage Stamp

First Day of Issue: January 25, 2013 - Slovenia

Slovenia has issued a new postage stamp celebrating the 200th birthday of Fran Miklošič.

Fran Miklošič was a Slovene philologist. During the European revolutions of 1848, known in some countries as the Spring of Nations, Miklošič was actively engaged in the Slovene national movement. He was among authors who demanded a United Slovenia. Although these demands failed, they remained part of the Slovene national movement until World War I.
