He was governor of Croatia when the revolution of 1848 broke out in Hungary, and he commanded an army against the revolutionists. His purpose was to separate Croatia from Hungary, and he was backed by the Austrian government. After the fall (1849) of the Hungarian revolutionary government of Kossuth, Jellachich was again governor of Croatia, which remained a part of Hungary.
