Storyboard Text

  • I am Joseph II. The emperor of Austria.
  • I am catholic and I call myself the Guardian of Catholicism.
  • One of my Strengths would be that I averaged 690 decrees a year.
  • Some of my reforms included abolishing serfdom, ending press censorship and limiting the power of the Catholic Church. And with his Edict of Toleration, Joseph gave minority religions, such as Protestants, Greek Orthodox and Jews, the ability to live and worship more freely.
  • Some of my weaknesses were that not everyone excepted my decrees and refused to pay taxes. In order to counter Prussa's strength I created an alliance with Russia. This created a conflict with Turkey.
  • I am strict with education. I separated the church from the University of Vienna.I deprived the bishops of their authority and limited their communications with the Pope.
  • I created scholarships for talented poor students and allowed the establishment of schools for Jews and other religious minorities. In 1784, I ordered that the country change its language of instruction from Latin to German
  • I died of tuberculosis in 1790.
  • I issued the serfdom patent. Which aimed to abolish aspects of the traditional serfdom system of the Habsburg.
