Franz Xaver Zoller came from Baden-Baden to Ödenburg and opened a watchmaking shop; he received the freedom of the city in 1771. In 1790 he was elected tribune of the people. However, since he sympathised openly with the French Revolution, Zoller came into conflict with the city council and most likely left Ödenburg.

Ödenburg, Sopron today, is a city in northwest Hungary, southwest of Lake Neusiedl. The municipal area extends into Austrian territory like a spur. Sopron is one of the oldest towns in Hungary and forms a kind of bridge between Hungary and its Western neighbours. The University of West Hungary in Sopron was established as early as 1735.
