Thoughts on this country? How could a country with a modern-day population of 8.4 million (probably ~2million in the actual duchy of austria region) conquer such vast tracts of land and become one of the most unique empires in history?

>>5091
They didn't conquer anything, besides arguably Bosnia. Most of it was acquired through royal marraiges and other diplomatic agreements.

>>5091
shithole

Sounds like my kind of empire

>What is Galicia (Poland)
>What is Dalmatia (Venice)
>What is Slovenia (Aquilea iirc)
>>
>>5343
Your kind of empire is a messed up mix of all kinds of ethnicities and cultures, that can't get its shit straight?

It was created through union of people as opposed to barbaric wars
>>
From 1867 on it was top tier.

They were a union of two developed powers in feudal ages, Hungary and Austria. Spain and France had an royal marriage union too, however, the fear of they becoming too strong made all of europe start a war to make them two countrys again.
>>
>>5091
It was a garbage empire.
>>
>>5091
It was a garbage empire because they took Bosnia.

I'll just leave this here:
>"Bella gerant alii, tu felix Austria nube
>Nam quae Mars aliis, dat tibi diva Venus"

>"Others may wage wars, you happy Austria marry
>What Mars gives others, the divine Venus gives to you"
>>
>>5091
"Leave the waging of wars to others! But you, happy Austria, marry; for the realms which Mars awards to others, Venus transfers to you."

Let's forget the only kingdom of the Holy Roman Empire.
Let's give consessions to the rebellious magyars.
Fuck you, guys. FUCK. YOU.
>>
>>5091
Austro-Hungaria wasn't a country. Austria and Hungary were independent states with parliaments completely independent from each other, they just shared the same monarch.
>>
>>5961
How is that a concession?
>>6128
Wrong, actually, the parliaments in the Austro-Hungarian country weren't completely separate.
>>
>>6196
>How is that a concession?
Duality was the concession. Having them decide their own things was the concession.
>>
>>6237
Just because the Austrians were egomaniacal jackasses who couldn't function according to their own law.
Shouldn't have illegally invaded Hungary and encouraged internal conflict within the empire.

But anon that's the definition of empire.
>>
>>6472
No, not really.
>>
>>6472
An empire is a country with more than 1 kingdom.
A kingdom is a country with more than 1 duchy.
A duchy is a country with more than 1 county/city
So on and so forth.

The sexiest empire the world has ever seen before they took Bosnia.
>>
>>5406
A mistake
>>
>>6909
It's like you can already see the treaty of trianon :^)
>>
>>7016
Yeah, it's almost like the Hungarian state after WWI was supposed to include all areas that were ethnically Hungarian right?
>>
>>5091
United States of Greater Austria when? Best empire ever.
>>
>>5091
It just looks big on a map. Their "empire" consisted of the personal property of the Hapsburgs, and was made up of a hundred different ethnicities that hated eachother. You can see how well that worked out.
