  Janez Bleiweis (1808-1881)  
  the Slovene politician and national leader, the publisher of Kmetijske in rokodelske novice (Farmers' and Crafts News). History describes him as a controversial person, who would rapidly alter his convictions and principles. His attitude to Prešeren was ambivalent too, even though he cannot be denied the credit for putting Prešeren on the literary and wider cultural map of Slovenia. He advocated the erection of a monument to Prešeren in Kranj. During the last years of the poet's life, Bleiweis tried to give Prešeren a firmer place in public life; he ensured the publication of some of the poems, which lifted the spirits of the exhausted poet.
