Klagenfurt, the chief town of Carinthia, Austria, dates from the 16th century. Since 1809, when it was taken by the French, it has ceased to be a fortress; but it has an active transit trade and manufactories of white lead, cast-iron, and leather. The chief glories of the place are the palace of the Prince-bishop of Gurk, the Rudolfinum museum, and a large library.
