Is austria Hungary the same as austria?
First it was Hungary under Habsburg rule from the 16th century. Later, there was a Hungarian Revolution in March, 1848, and a War of Independence against the Habsburg rule in 1848-49. It was unsuccessful. The absolutism and the oppresion became even stronger. When the Habsburgs suffered some military failures and financial problems in the middle of the 19th century, in addition the threat of a strong united Germany and Italy became stronger (violiting the Habsburg dominance in Eastern Europe), they were forced to make a compromise with the Hungarians (the Magyars) in 1867. From 1867 to 1918 it was called Austria-Hungary It was a dual country with a common monarch, with common foreign, defense and finance ministers, but otherwise with separate capital citie, separate parliaments. After the First World War, in the Treaty of Versailles (1918-19)Austria-Hungary (or Austro-Hungarian Empire) dissolved.

The transformation of the Austrian Empire into Austria-Hungary dates from the 'Ausgleich' (usually tranlated as 'Compromise') of 1867. In 1866 Austria suffered a disastrous defeat at the hands of Prussia and was in effect expelled from Germany. There was a danger that the Hungarians, who had rebel…led in 1848-49, might again rise in rebellion against Habsburg rule. (That said, negotiations for some kind of autonomy for Hungary had been in progress before the war of 1866). This vast empire (the second largest state in Europe - after Russia) disintegrated in 1918. (MORE)

Austria and Hungary are separate countries, but I know Hungary's natural resources if that helps. Some are bauxite, coal, natural gas (Let's invade Hungary! Lower fuel prices! Haha.), fertile soils, and arable land.
In the last two years or so of World War 1 there was growing dissatisfaction among the various nationalities of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Most wanted to form their own nation-states or join neighbouring states.. At the end of the war, the only completely new state was Czechoslovakia. Large areas… of the Empire broke away. Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia joined Serbia to form Yugoslavia; Galicia became part of the revived state of Poland, while Transylvania, the Banat and Bukovina became part of Romania. (MORE)
In October 1918, as World War I was ending. Over the course of thelast few weeks of the month, various parts of the Empire broke awayto become new countries, until all that was left was "GermanAustria", which became modern Austria.
Answer . It was known that the assassination was carried out by members of the Black Hand - a Serbian terrorist organization. The Austrian government believed that the terrorists were supported by the Serbian secret service.
A Serbian terrorist group assassinated Austria-Hungary's Archduke Francis Ferdinad and his family. Bosnia(where Ferdinand was) was full of Serbs and other Slavs. They veiwed Austrians as foreign opressors. Gavrilo Princip shot the archduke. (he was part of the terrorist group the Black Hand)
The Austro-Hungarian empire was never a communist state. Following WWI and the breakup of Austria-Hungary, Hungary briefly became the Hungarian Soviet Republic from 21 March until 6 August 1919. Hungary was also a communist country, the People's Republic of Hungary, after WWII until 1989.
The Habsburg Ruler and his advisors skillfully manipulated the Croatian, Serbian and Romanian peasantry, led by priests and officers firmly loyal to the Habsburgs, and induced them to rebel against the Hungarian government. The Hungarians were supported by the vast majority of the Slovak, German and… Rusyn nationalities, as well as by the Jews of the kingdom, and by a large number of Polish, Austrian and Italian volunteers.  . Initially, the Hungarian forces ( HonvÃ©dsÃ©g ) achieved several stalemates fighting with Austrian armies (at PÃ¡kozd in September 1848 and at Isaszeg in April 1849), during which they declared Hungary's total independence from Austria, in April 1849. Thus Hungary got its Independence from Austria in April 1849 (MORE)
firstly "austria & Hungary declared was on Serbia" does not make sense but austria & Hungary declared war on Serbia in the year 1914.
Personally I do not agree that Austria-Hungary were to blame for WWI. This is because on the 8th December 1912 an Imperial War Council was held between Kaiser Wilhelm II, Army General Von Moltke and Naval Admiral Von Tirpitz, all Germans. At this conference the Kaiser decided that, instead of immedi…ately going to war at the time he would wait 1 and a half years until he went to war (this would be June-July 1914, when the war actually did begin). Due to this I believe that even if the Archduke had not been murdered in Sarajevo Germany would have found another reason of some sort for them to go to war. (MORE)
It's not so much that they were "carved out" of Austria-Hungary-these countries simply broke away as World War I was ending and theAustrian government was unable to stop them. Here's the list: 1. Hungary 2. Czechoslovakia (which is now split into Slovakia and CzechRepublic). 3. Kingdom of Slovenes,… Croats and Serbs, which then becameYugoslavia (this has since split into Bosnia and Herzegovina,Serbia, Slovenia, Macedonia, Kosovo*, and Croatia). Parts of Austria-Hungary were taken by other countries, such as achunk that was taken by Romania, another taken by Ukraine (whichthen became part of the Soviet Union), and part taken by Italy. Theremaining part, called "German Austria", become the Republic ofAustria, which it still is to this day. The * by Kosovo is because many countries do not recognize Kosovoas a country, in particular, Serbia, Russia and other countriesthat are their friends. Kosovo was a part of Serbia until itdeclared independence a few years ago. (MORE)
It was in the middle of Europe: where Austria and hungary are located now. It does not exist any more. Austria-Hungary was a country from 1867 to 1918. The Compromise of 1867 brought them together and they established a Dual Monarchy in which they shared power over the country and had two separate p…arliaments. (MORE)
Austria and Hungary WERE a dual monarchy for about 70 years before the First World War. If you look at history you will find that many countries and regions, especially in Europe, changed borders and alliances over the decades and centuries to try to become more powerful. You will find that England …held much of France for a while, and that France and Spain and Russia held much of what is now the USA. (MORE)
That country actually doesn't exist any more, it was the name of an empire, called the Austro-Hungarian empire, that was founded when the Austrian and Hungarian monarchies joined in 1867, they then dissolved after a defeat to the Italian army in WWI in 1918. The Empire encompassed parts of what is… now: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Montenegro, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Ukraine. (MORE)
Hungary was the fourth, willing country to join the Axis by signing a treaty on Nov. 20th 1940 though in some parts were led un-loyal to the Axis.

A+ students It did not have much of a chance, given the historicaltraditions of the countries. Democracy did not have much of a chance inAustria-Hungary, given the historical traditions in thecountries. s.e.g.
Austria-Hungary was not a part of Germany; it was a monarchy ruled by Franz Josef the first, that split into pieces after the First World War. During the same period, Germany was run by Kaiser Wilhelm the first and the second. ___ Until 1866 Austria was part of the German Confederation and in fac…t officially the 'top dog' in Germany. In 1866 Prussia expelled Austria by force (in a war, that is) and dissolved the German Confederation. The following year Austria agreed to share power with Hungary, and Austria-Hungary was formed. So the answer above is technically correct but it is useful to have more background. (MORE)

She never surrender to Serbia alone, but surrendered to Allied powers including Serbia. Serbia at near end of the war occupied territory that will be known as Yugoslavia and some parts of Hungary and Austria.
In the Habsburg Empire absolutism was restored after the unsuccessful Hungarian War of Independence (1849-49). However, Franis Joseph was forced to come to terms with his Magyars, because of military and financial problems in the Empire. The Compromise of 1867 transformed the Habsburg Empire into …a dual monarchy. Francis Joseph was crowned King of Hungary (as well). Except for the common monarch, Austria-Hungary became separate states. They shared ministers of foreign affairs (see WWI)!), defence, and finance, but the other ministers were different for each state. There were also separate parliaments. It benefited somehow to both countries: they became stronger. Austria had industrial strengths, while Hungary had agricultural strengths. However, they split after WWI. (MORE)
The country of Austria-Hungary divided into the individual countries Austria and Hungary after WW1 but it was located in Europe.
Austria-Hungary- or the Austro-Hungarian Empire is a defunct political scheme akin to Confederate States or U.S.S.R it no longer exists- a fallen flag- the Empire was broken up.

Austria_Hungary had an alliance with Germany, and actually started WW1 by invading Serbia in 1914. They were an unstable empire, and were worried about collapsing like the Ottoman Empire. For this reason they really wanted to crush Serbia, who were gaining power and trying to start a greater Slavic …State - which a lot of people living in A-H would have joined. Germany gave them military backing, and they were keen to fight in a war and regain some power. They were thought of as Germany's only reliable ally. (MORE)
Did Austria-Hungary have a big military is taken collectively with them as a single country, the answer is no. Austria-Hungry (the Austro-Hungarian Empire) was dissolved as a single country after World War I. By the start of World War II, the country of Austria had been absorbed (the Anschluss or… 1938) into Nazi Germany. Hungary was an independent nation at the start of the second world war. She joined Germany and Italy in the Axis alliance and did provided soldiers to support the German war effort. (MORE)

I believe they were an ally of Germany and they also wanted to take control of other surrounding lands.
No, Austria - Hungary allied with Bulgaria (and Germany) in the First World War. It was invaded by the Allies in 1916.
The Austro-Hungarian monarchy dissolved on October 31, 1918 following military defeat in World War I.
Oddly enough, because he was a good guy. He showed signs of being areformer, whenever the old Emperor finally did die and he assumedthe throne. That day could not be far off, because the Emperor wasancient and had been on the throne for 66 years, and, in fact theEmperor died two years after the heir… was assassinated. The killerswere Serbian nationalists. Serbia was a tiny independent nationbordering the Empire. It had only a few decades earlier wriggledfree of the Ottoman Empire (Turkey) to once again become anindependent nation, but during the glory days in the Middle Agesthere had been a moderately large Serbian Empire. These Serbiannationalists dreamed of bringing back those wonderful, heady days,and wanted to see all ethnic Serbs become a part of Serbia, alongwith the ground they lived on. The Austro-Hungarian Empire had justa few years earlier annexed (grabbed for itself) the territory ofBosnia-Herzegovina, of which the city of Sarajevo was the capital.Sarajevo was where the Austrian heir and his wife were murdered.There were ethnic Serbs living in this region, and the Serbiannationalists believed those people should be part of gloriousgreater Pan-Serbia, and not a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.And, if Franz Ferdinand did turn out to be a reformer, why, hemight make accommodations to this Serbian population once he becameEmperor, and they might then lose any desire they might currentlyhave to get out of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and become part ofSerbia. So he had to go. (MORE)
It didn't. Austria-Hungary was a huge powerful empire. Serbia was weak and tiny. The one advantage Serbia had was its ally, Russia, but Austria-Hungary had Germany to back it up, which nullified that possible advantage.
Austria-Hungary was involved in campaigns against Russia and was the only Central Power with most of its efforts directed towards Italy.
Austria-Hungary was never invaded by the Ottoman Empire. And in fact, they were World War I allies.
Austria-Hungary collapsed just before the war ended because of the years they had been fighting. It lost to Russia and Italy.
Austria- hungary were against serbia in ww1 because austria's archduke Franz Ferdinand was assasinated by serbian terrorists. This is one of the reasons the first world war began.
Austria and Hungary from 1867-1918 were combined in union as the Austro-Hungarian Empire or simply known as Austria-Hungary.From the 1500's Hungary had been a part of the Habsburg Empire,sometimes just known as Austria.But in 1867 was given a partnership as an equal in a dual monarchy.
If you're talking about Austria-Hungary and the one whose death started World War I, that would be Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

Austria-Hungary is now a historical term. It used to be a countryruled over by the Habsburgs. The Habsburgs had always had a lot ofproblems with the Hungarians as they never gave up their rebellionsfor independence. So, in 1867, they made a compromise andthis way a dual monarchy called Austria-Hun…gary.

Austria and Hungary are neighbouring separate countries in Europe at the moment. Nevertheless, they share a very long common history. For centuries there was a Habsburg sitting on the Hungarian throne (being both an emperor of the Habsburg Monarchy and the Hungarian King). In 1867, when there was th…e Compromise between the two countries, Francis Joseph was crowned King of Hungary, but except for the common monarch, Austria and Hungary became separate. They shared ministers of foreign affairs, defence, and finance, but the other affairs were dealt separately. There were also separate parliaments and capital cities. (Note that the Hungarians could not decide whether to enter the First world War or not, not even having an army of their own.) This dualism lasted until 1918, when after the First World War all the nations in the monarchy having been ruled by the Habsburgs wanted and became independent. (MORE)
Russia wanted land in Europe, and an access to sea. It wanted to increase infuence in eastern Europe and the Balkans at the expense of Austria-Hungary. Austria-Hungary's goal was to maintain its position in eastern Europe at the expense of Russia. The 'powder keg' was the Balkans. So, Austria-Hungar…y sided with Germany to protect themselves from Russia (Dual Alliance, later with Italy forming the Triple Alliance in 1879); Russia sided with France and Britain to protect herself against Germany and Austria-Hungary (Triple Entente, 1907). When the First world War started with the Austrian attack on Serbia (28 July, 1914), Russia made preparations according to her promise to Serbia (in case of an Austrian attack on Serbia Russia would prepare her army to help Serbia). All the opposing countries declared war on each other. On 5th August 1914, Austria declared war on Russia, consequently, a week later Britain and France declared war on Austria. (Note, that Hungary did not have a separate ministry of foreign affairs, or a separate army at the time. Hungary was involved in a war which was fought for the Austrian imperial prestige and greed. The price was great: after the first World War, in the Treaty of Versailles, Hungary became independent at last, but lost two third of its original territory - that's why it sided with Germany in the Second Wrld War.)

In 1914, a place called Bosnia was part of Austria-Hungary, and there was a neighboring country was Serbia. Serbs and Bosnians are part of a larger group of people called "Slavs", so they are related groups, with similar languages and customs; Austrians and Hungarians are not Slavs (Austrians are Ge…rman, and Hungarians are their own thing). So, a lot of Bosnians wanted to break away from Austria-Hungary and then either make their own country, or join Serbia to make a bigger country called "Yugoslavia" (after World War I, Yugoslavia would indeed be made out of Serbia, Bosnia, and some other Slavic countries). In the early 1900's, as Serbia and her neighbors started breaking free from the Ottoman Empire, Russia began poking in and trying to heavily influence things- at that time, it was pretty common for very powerful countries like France, England and Russia to force smaller, weaker countries to do what they wanted. So Russia developed a close relationship with Serbia, and they actually became very friendly- Russians are also Slavs, so that probably helped. In June 1914, a Bosnian man shot and killed the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne while the heir was visiting the capital city of Bosnia. The assassin and his co-conspirators were captured by Austrian police and interrogated; they implicated Serbians and even Serbian military officials. Austria-Hungary's government was furious and gave Serbia a harsh ultimatum and two days to respond or Austria would declare war. Serbia had to say no to the Austrian demands, and Austria declared war. Since Russia was close friends with Serbia, Russia declared war on Austria, and World War I had begun. (MORE)
