Product Description

Drawing on previously unknown Spanish and Austrian archives, Andrew Wheatcroft draws a multi-layered picture of the imperial family. Tracing its history over three centuries, he describes the rise to power and the creation of the Austrian (later Austro-Hungarian) Empire, and the decline and final days of the monarchy. Special attention is paid to the early Habsburgs, who laid the foundations for the family’s rise to power.
Its various aspects make this book an interesting and historically elaborate read.
