- Short Historical Note :
- After the German occupation of Yugoslavia, the Kingdom of Croatia was founded under German "supervision" on 10 April 1941. The Italian Duke of Spoleto was nominated King and Dr. Ante Pavelic became "Poglavnik" ("Leader", Prime Minister). On the departure of the Germans from the country in 1944, Croatia eventually became a republic with limited powers of self-government within the state of Yugoslavia.
