He was fierce opponent of Károly Khuen-Héderváry, who was at the time Ban of Croatia which made him the most popular in the opposition. On 5 October 1885 he attacked Héderváry by grabbing his neck and one of his party colleagues kicked him in his breeches. The event was very popular in Croatia and Starčević boasted with this action. Héderváry denied such event and Starčević was sentenced for six months in prison because of slander, Starčević was also expelled from parliament. After conflict in the Party of Rights, he joined to the "Fatherland Faction" (Domovinaši) led by Fran Folnegović, but in 1895 he joined Pure Party of Rights led by Josip Frank; the faction was called Frankovci. Soon, Starčević left the political life. He died in Jastrebarsko on 18 November 1908. (en)
