The origin of the village of Plain in Wisconsin (USA) name is widely rumored to have been selected as an homage to the Shrine of the Virgin Mary at Maria Plain, in Salzburg, Austria.

The Archbishopric of Salzburg was an ecclesiastical state of the Holy Roman Empire, roughly consisting of the present-day state of Salzburg (the ancient Roman city of Iuvavum) in Austria.

Sigismund Graf von Schrattenbach (* 28 February 1698 in Graz; † 16 December 1771 in Salzburg) was the Archbishop of Salzburg from 1753 to 1771. He was the son of Otto Heinrich, Graf von Schrattenbach, and Maria Theresa, Countess of Wildenstein, widowed Baroness Gall von Gallenstein.

After studying theology, he was ordained a priest in 1723. He became Archbishop of Salzburg after the death of Andreas Jakob Graf von Dietrichstein, and was himself succeeded after his death by Hieronymus von Colloredo. Michael Haydn wrote a Requiem in his honor, and stayed in Salzburg under the reign of Colloredo. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, on the other hand, left soon after.
