    There is apparently another definition: to divide into 6 parts, apparently derived from the Latin. From "The Long Fuse-an Interpretation of the Origins of World War I", by Laurence Lafore, page 94. The discussion is about the possible incorporation of Serbia, Bosnia, Herzogovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Bulgaria, etc into the Austro-Hungarian Empire (the Dual Monarchy) in 1878, in the face of opposition from the Magyars of the Hungarian part of the Empire, because they [[the Magyars]] would thus be numerically overwhelmed. "The only possible way to handle such a vast increment of subjects of another nationality would have been to substitute for the unwieldy dualism of Austria-Hungary a trialism: Austria-Hungary-South Slavia. And this seemed impracticable. For one thing, it would have led to progressive demands: quadralism for the Czechs, which the Germans {{in Austria}} would have undyingly opposed; quinquelism for the Poles--perhaps sexualism for the Italians--and so on endlessly until the Hapsburg Monarchy was nothing more than a heaving mass of incompatible principalities."
