Query: Attendance to the Provincial Diets of the Austrian Empire during the 1820s

Dear Colleagues,

I am currently analysing the activities of the Galician Diet from 1817 to 1845, and I am interested in getting a comparative perspective regarding attendance as part of a broader project reevaluating the atttitudes of Galician nobles (included untitled landowners) towards the Habsburg state in the period before 1848.
