Brief History:
Linz started to grow its population during the 15th century and gained its city rights around 1424. A cooperative was formed in 1489 and Linz was later on occupied by Holy Roman Emperor Frederick III. His presence made Linz an important city during the Roman period. After four years, Frederick III passed away and stripped the city off its status handing over the mantle to Vienna.
