Twilight of the Habsburgs: The Life and Times of Emperor Francis Joseph

by

Twilight of the Habsburgs: The Life and Times of Emperor Francis Joseph Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

No ruler in modern times reigned in full sovereignty for as long as Francis Joseph, emperor of Austria and king of Hungary, Bohemia, Dalmatia, Croatia, and Slavonia. Titular master of central Europe from 1848 until 1916, he was center stage in Europe throughout the dramatic era in which Italy and Germany emerged as united nation states. His personal decisions were vital both to the outcome of the Crimean War and to the onset of World War I, sixty years later. Far more than a biography of a great ruler, Twilight of the Habsburgs is a social, cultural, political, and military history of Europe from the end of the Napoleonic era to the assassination at Sarajevo. "Just the right balance between the story of Francis Joseph's life and the history of his times." — The New York Times Book Review; "Excellent and absorbing . . . A compelling read." — Evening Standard (London).
