What became of the empire of Austria-Hungary after World War I?
After World War 1, Austria-Hungary was broken into pieces, roughly along ethnic lines. Austria, Hungary, Czechoslovakia all became independent states. Land was given to Romania (Transylvania, the Banat and most of Bukovina) and Italy. The Austrian Province of Galicia was combined with the former German-Polish lands, and the Russian-Polish lands taken by Germany at the Treaty of Brest-Litovsk, to reestablish the republic of Poland. Dalmatia and Croatia and Slovenia all merged with the formerly independent Bosnia to create Yugoslavia.
At the end of World War 1, the Austrian-Hungarian Empire had collapsed into ethnic violence following the death of Emperor Franz Joseph.

Yes they did. After the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie had taken place by a Black Hand member, Austria started war against Serbia. …Yes, but becauser Serbia refused the ultimatum sent. Austria-Hungary did not start WWI. They all had their part in it, because simply put, its all about inevitability. All the way from the time of the Napoleonic Wars up to WWI, everything was pretty much calm. Not too many wars happened, and when they did they didn't last too long and there weren't many killed. Anyhow, during this period, all these European countries became more powerful. Bascially, they all got very rich and what better place to invest all that money but the army. So therefore, by the late 1800s and the early 1900s, all of these European countries such as Germany, France, Italy, Russia, Austria-Hungary, England, and others were very wealthy, and they all had a powerful military. So, four sources of tension came up: nationalism, political and family rivalries, military buildups, and the alliance systems. So basically, all of Europe could be viewed as a lake full of gasoline, just waiting for that match to fall in a cause the explosion. WWI was inevitable and was going to happen weather Gavrillo Princep killed Ferdinand or not. Austria started conflict and later the world war 1 because they had always wanted to crush Serbia who had helped and encouraged the Serbs living in Bosnia, Austria to uprise against the Austrian government and break free from their rule. Austria feared that if the Serbs succeeded then the other nationalities in Austria like the Poles, Croats, Ukranians would also break off and make their empire weak. They therefore decided that it would be best to crush Serbia, and so when the Serbian terrorist group "Black Hand" shot the heir to the throne Franz Ferdinand on June 28 1914 Austria sent an ultimatum to Serbia expecting it not to be accepted because they thought that this assasination would be a perfect excuse to crush Serbia once and for all. And when the Serbia accepted all but one of Austria's ultimatum demands ( which were brutal and hard to comply with) Austria declared war against Serbia (as it had always wanted) And so, I guess you could say that Austria did begin major conflict and was the very first nation to proclaim war. I totally agree with you Austria pretty much just wanted a reason to start a war and when it got support from Germany it didn't think twice about negotiating some other punishment for Serbia but it declared war not understanding that the Russian were going to support Serbia and France would support Russia and so it would become something much bigger. Comment The Serbs *argreed* to most of the points in the ultimatum from Austria-Hungary, and the latter came very close to accepting. However, the German General Staff, which was the key actor and manipulator, immediately used its influence to strengthen the hawks in Vienna. All that talk what about Austria did and didn't want to do is based on the notion that its politicians were operating in some kind of vacuum. Life isn't that simple!
Answer Both Austria-Hungary and Germany feared Russia, the Ottoman Empire was also an old enemy of Russia. Also, Germany had been diplomatically isolated pre-WWI by con…testing France's takeover of Morroco so that it could demand more colonial territory. Austria-Hungary was one of the few nations it could rely on, and so, although Austria-Hungary was highly aggressive in an unstable area (the Balkans), Germany felt it needed at least this powerful ally. Germany had also been heavily investing in the Ottoman Empire pre-WWI. The Ottoman Empire probably also was angry at Britain for forcing it to make Kuwait autnomous. Bulgaria came into the war after it had started, but it had for a long time desired Macedonia, then a part of Serbia, as part of its country. Bulgaria's royal lineage can also be traced back to the Germany during the time of the war.
What were the effects of World War 1 on Germany Great Britain France Austria-Hungary Russia the United States and the Ottoman Empire?
Five great empires entered World War One, and only one emerged. Germany, Austro-Hungary, Russia and the Ottomans all lost their empires as a result of the war. Germany was s…horn of its colonies at the Versailles Peace Conference and a republican democracy was created. The Kaiser abdicated and the Hohenzollern throne was no more. The Hapsburgs had ruled in central Europe for hundreds of years, and their "Dual Monarchy" in Austria-Hungary was broken up into smaller nations. The Ottoman Empire had ruled Asia Minor and the Middle East for four hundred years. The Middle East was taken away and divided into new nations, and mandated territories under the League of Nations under French and British control. All that remained of the once vast and powerful Ottoman Empire was Turkey, and the Sultan was dethroned. The Romanov dynasty in Russia did not survive even until the war was over. The Soviets took over Russia, ending hundreds of years of Czarist rule, and imposed a communist regime that lasted for seventy years and forced the Cold War upon the rest of the world. Germany was forced to "admit" at Versailles that it was solely responsible for World War One, a judgment which is not entirely accurate but which was in accord with French feelings and a vindictive desire to punish the Germans. The harsh terms imposed on Germany, the reparations demanded, ensured that German resentment would simmer and the world would be treated to a sequel, which came to pass within a generation. Britain managed to hang on to its empire but was vastly weakened. The nation was bankrupted by the immense expenditure of treasure in fighting the war. France was similarly devastated. As in Britain, an entire generation of young men was in the cemeteries or maimed for life, with spirits broken by the horrific ordeal of the western front. The Treasury was empty. Most of the fighting on the western front had taken place in France, and the land was ravaged, pocked with craters, poisoned with gas and full of metal shell fragments. Cities, towns and villages were insignificant heaps of rubble. To this day there exists a "Zone Rouge" in France where the land is uninhabitable, though it shrinks every year, the soil so poisoned by the war that it cannot support life. Farmers in parts of France and Belgium require armored tractors to plow their land, so they will not be killed when their plows strike and detonate long-buried unexploded artillery shells from the Great War. Someone is still killed every year from this menace, though efforts have been continuous over the last ninety years to find these explosives. For a generation after the war people made a living gleaning metal shell fragments from the battllefields for scrap metal recycling. The United States was deeply disillusioned by its experience. The people of the US had thought to settle this horror between "civilized" people so that the rule of reason could return and peace be nourished. The bitter, greedy squabbling of the peace process and the vulgar grasping that went on there convinced most in the US that the effort had been wasted, and that Europe was irredeemable. Most people in the US wanted to go back to the way things had always been, with the US minding its own business, taking little part in international affairs, and certainly none in the incessant bloodbaths of Europe, which , after all, many of their ancestors had crossed the ocean to escape. The United States wanted only a "return to normalcy" and isolationism. Northern France after the war was in receipt of clothing from England For a period of time most of the affected nations were involved in the formation of the League of Nations, proposed and spearheaded by the United States under the aegis and will power of President Woodrow Wilson.
The main role that the Ausrian-Hungary Emipre played in WW1 was the most significant. It chaged the world after the war because they just found a most plausible answer t…hey could find to start a war. After the alliances were formed with Germany and Italy they only had imperailistic ideals. Thus brang forth the the revolution of WW1. It's simple to see why its all started in the first place. Every country wanted more power to call there own and no one country would back down in there quest.
How would the world be different if the Greeks had lost the war and became part of the Persian Empire?
Since this asks for conjecture, you will likely get different answers. Answer 1 Very little different - the Greeks were resilient and would have ended up e…xpelling the Persians. After all, half the Greek cities were already part of the Persian Empire, and threw off Persian rule. Answer 2 Much of the development of Athenian democracy came out of the struggles against Persia and the period just afterwards. While I agree with Answer 1, that there would be minimal difference concerning the survival of the Greek city-states, I am less inclined to believe that Greek modes of governance would have survived the Persian satrapi system which was more effective in terms of creating a unified action-process. As a result, there is a strong possibility that the Greek academic and philosophical tradition that developed after the Greco-Persian Wars would not have developed. Since this tradition formed the basis for modern science, philosophy, and governmental practice, many of the developments that occurred later using this information as launchpad may have been similarly delayed or may not have started at all. Comment: Some of the most advanced development of Greek philosophy, science and arts came from the Greek cities of Asia Minor, much of it during periods of Persian rule there. The Persians were tolerant and did not interfere with the Greek cities as long as they remained peaceful. In fact the Persian capitals in Persia itself hosted a strong element of Greeks, who hung around the Persian king's court. There is no reason to believe that Persia would stifle Greek development, in fact the peace and prosperity which Persia encouraged promoted development.

Austria-Hungary was allied with Germany, Bulgaria, and the Ottoman Empire during World War 1. The Austrian Army was confined to the Eastern Front and Italian Front of the war …hence forth it fought against the Russian Army in the east and the Italian Army to the southwest. In the beginning of the war Austria briefly invaded Serbia but was repelled within months. In 1915 they tried again with their allies of Germany and Bulgaria, only then did they conquer Serbia. Austria declared war on Belgium and Portugal but never fought them. In 1918 the Serbian, Greek, French, and British launched an offensive from their Macedonian Front, Austria therefore fought these armies as well but at this point Austria-Hungary was nothing more then a rag army. In the Mediterranean the Austrian Navy engaged British transport ships and in 1918 briefly fought the Italian Navy resulting in the loss of two Austrian ships.
It first started off with just Germany and Austria-Hungary, forming the Dual Alliance. When war broke out, Bulgaria and the Ottoman Empire joined the side they thought would w…in. They did this to gain more land in the Balkans once the war was over. Bulgaria had gone to war with its former Balkan allies over land and lost, and Turkey had practically lost all of the Balkans to the same wars, an area they used to fully control.
