Archduke Friedrich gets back lands

November 12, 1922

Archduke Friedrich of Austria has regained ownership of his Hungarian estates thanks to a redrawing of the map of Hungary, reports the Associated Press.

The Interallied Territorial commission, under the Treaty of Trianon, "had the task of correcting the boundary lines by investigations made on the spot."

Most of these decisions have been in favor of Hungary, which regains about 35,000 acres from the "lost provinces," several villages near the Yugoslavian border, and the "big estates" of Archduke Friedrich, located on the Austrian border, are now back in Hungary.
