About me / Bio:
Franjo Malgaj was a Slovenian soldier, military leader, and poet. Born on November 10, 1894, in Hruševec, Šentjur, then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, he was an officer in the Austro-Hungarian Army during World War I. After the war, he became a commanding officer in the Slovene volunteer army under Rudolf Maister's command, fighting for the northern Slovenian borderlands. He is remembered for his role in the Austro-Slovene conflict in Carinthia and is considered a Slovenian national hero. Malgaj's death on May 6, 1919, at Tolsti Vrh near Dravograd in Carinthia, was a result of combat during the Austrian-Yugoslav struggles. His legacy lives on in the Slovenian national consciousness, and he is celebrated for his patriotism and contributions to Slovenia's history.
