About Ante Tresić Pavičić

Croatian poet, writer and politician

Volume 61 of the literary collection Pet stoljeca Hrvatske Knjizevnosti (Five centuries of Croatian Literature) published in 1963 by Matica Hrvatska, Zagreb is dedicated to Ante Tresic-Pavicic and gives examples of his poetry, travelogues and Drama.

He was a member of the delegation from the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (SHS) at the peace conference in Paris 1919-1920. He was the ambassador of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (SHS) to the Court of king Alfonso XIII in Madrid (1920) and later in 1922 he was appointed the ambassador of the SHS to the USA in Washington.

Ante Tresic-Pavisic was one of those Croatian writers who left visible an impact on Croatian national literature. He is far less known as a political writer and politician. Assessment of his political career has remained fragmentary and one-faceted because it has never been the subject of a serious monographic work. Yet, Tresic's case is paradigmatic of the behavior of other Croatian politicians during the Monarchy of Yugoslavia.

As a politician, he belonged to those Yugoslav idealists who were not rare among the Croats and who believed that liberation from the Germans, Hungarians and Italians, and unification with other South Slavic peoples, including the Serbs, would mean national emancipation for the Croats.

He was also a member of the Sabor and accepted the surrender of the Austrian Hungarian fleet in Pula.

In the meantime, events in Zagreb accelerated the collapse of the monarchy. The Croatian parliament, the Sabor, declared on October 29, 1918, the constitutional connection with Hungary terminated, and proclaimed Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia and independent state (12). The Sabor then went on to give executive authority in the new state to the National Council in Zagreb.


In Zagreb the National Council appointed Dr. Ante Tresić-Pavičić, Vilim Bukšek, and Dr. Ivan Čok as its representatives to receive the battle fleet from Admiral Horthy. These three were joined in Pula by local representatives Dr. Lovro Skailer, Dr. Mirko Vratović, Lacko Križ, Mario Krmpotić, and Commander Metod Koch (17).
