The Duchy of Styria in modern Austria and Slovenia Styria remained a part of the Habsburg Monarchy and from 1804 belonged to the Austrian Empire . The development of the duchy was decisively promoted by Archduke John of Austria , younger brother of Emperor Francis I , who in 1811 founded the Joanneum , predecessor of the Graz University of Technology , and the University of Leoben in 1840.
