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 rebelled 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.
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 u…ntil 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
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 parliaments.
Gavrilo Princip assassinated the Archduke Franz Ferdinand inSarejevo. Gavrilo Princip was a member of the Black Hand, a Serbiannationalist group
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 s…ome 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 Magy…ars, 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.
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 u…p. Austria AND Hungary are still extant but are independent countries. there were some territories like the Podcarpathian Rus ( pronounced (Ruse) that was claimed to be a Russian territory.
The Austria-Hungary nation was broken up into smaller nations. Pieces were also given to neighboring countries. Serbia absorbed Croatia, Macedonia, Bosnia, and Slovenia from A…ustria-Hungary (to form Yugoslavia). The Czech and Slovakian regions became Czechoslovakia. Hungary became a separate nation.
Yes, on 28th July, 1914.
They invaded Bosnia who at the time were rather close allies of Serbia. This made Serbia angry and thus forth they contacted Russia who were allies with Serbia. Russia then sa…id that if Austria-Hungary do anything to Serbia, Russia will have to react. Then after the assassination A-H shelled the capital of Serbia and that started the war.
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.
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 g…ave up their rebellionsfor independence. So, in 1867, they made a compromise andthis way a dual monarchy called Austria-Hungary. (One monarch, twocountries, two capitals, two parliaments, and some common things,for example the ministry of defense or ministry of finance.) Thisbig formation fell apart after the First World War in 1918.
