The Complete History of the Habsburg Empire: 1232–1789

This eBook edition of “The Complete History of the Habsburg Empire: 1232–1789” has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices.
History of the Austrian Empire embraces all that is wild and wonderful in history; early struggles for aggrandizement, the fierce strife with the Turks, the long conflicts and bloody persecutions of the Reformation, the thirty years' religious war, the meteoric career of Gustavus Adolphus and Charles XII. Shooting athwart the lurid storms of battle, the intrigues of Popes, power and encroachments of Louis XIV., the warfare of the Spanish succession and the Polish dismemberment. All these events combine in a sublime tragedy which fiction may in vain attempt to parallel.
