German revolutions of 1848–1849
Ferdinand issued two manifestos on May and June
Central Europe (Present-Day Vienna, Austria)
Ferdinand issued two manifestos on May 16, 1848, and June 3, 1848, which gave concessions to the people. He converted the Imperial Diet into a Constituent Assembly to be elected by the people. Other concessions were less substantial, and generally addressed the reorganizing and unification of Germany.
