Map of Austria-Hungary

Austria-Hungaryball was a multi-ethnic dual monarchy and constitutional unionball of the Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball and the Kingdom of Hungary-icon Kingdom of Hungaryball. And he is blind. He can also speak many languages. He also has an alternative name, which is already longer than it is; impress your friends by calling him The Kingdoms and Lands Represented in the Imperial Council and the Lands of the Holy Hungarian Crown of St. Stephenball.

He was part of the Central Powers of World War I. After the war he dissolved into Austria-icon Austriaball, Hungary-icon Hungaryball, Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball, and Kingdom of Yugoslavia-icon Yugoslaviaball. He suffered from chronic bipolar disorder in certain comics.


Austrian-Hungarian Compromise (1867-1900)

Before 1867, Austrian Empire-icon Austrian Empireball (known also as Austrian Empire-icon (crown) Habsburgball) was a moderately powerful countryball in Central Europe.

In 1866, he was defeated by Kingdom of Prussia-icon Prussiaball and the German Empire-icon North German Confederationball, making internal tensions since 1848 between himself and his other personality Hungaryball quite hot. So, in 1867 he agreed to become Austria-Hungary-icon Austria-Hungaryball after h̶u̶n̶g̶a̶r̶y̶'̶s̶ ̶t̶e̶m̶p̶e̶r̶ ̶t̶a̶n̶t̶r̶u̶m̶ the Austro-Hungarian Compromise of 1867 was signed.

He established good relationships with the newly-formed German Empire-icon German Empireball in 1873, forming the League of Three Emperors with Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball, but this was dissolving, and after the 1878 Russo-Turkish War, Austria-Hungary quickly took and occupied Bosniaball (which he annexed in 1908 and Kingdom of Serbiaball didn't like at all) from the Ottoman Empireball in 1878. In 1882, Austria-Hungaryball joined Italy-icon Italyball and German Empire-icon German Empireball to form the Triple Alliance against the Triple Entente which then Italy betrayed during WWI. However, both the Triple Alliance & Triple Entente fought along with the Japanese Empireball and USAball fought against Quingball in the Boxer Rebellion (1899-1901), forming the Eight-Nation Alliance for only this war.

Aggression and World War I (1900-1918)

Austria-Hungaryball was made up of many ethnicities, nationalities, and religions, so when he annexed what is now Bosnia-icon Bosniaball from the Ottoman-icon Ottoman Empireball in 1908, this caused tensions in the Balkan region with himself and Russian-Empire-icon Russiaball, who also wanted to control the area. Both were guilty of trying to expand their own local influence at the expense of the dying Ottoman-icon Ottoman Empireball; Austria-Hungaryball had initially supported Kingdom of Serbia-icon Serbiaball's revolution. Tensions rose during the 'Pig War' when Serbiaball tried to evade Habsburg control of its economy and politics. Austria-Hungaryball tried to punish him by placing sanctions and unsuccessfully trying to blockade Serbian pork exports. Serbiaball became too strong in the Balkan Wars of 1912 and 1913, Austria-Hungaryball's attitude towards him changed quite considerably.

He became extremely aggressive to Kingdom of Serbia-icon Serbiaball, so when he murdered Austria-Hungaryball's Archduke in June 1914, Austria-Hungaryball mobilized against him, supported by German Empire-icon German Empireball, while Russian-Empire-icon Russiaball also mobilized against them to protect Kingdom of Serbia-icon Serbiaball, along with France-icon Franceball, and UK-icon UKball stepped in to defend Belgium-icon Belgiumball from German Empire-icon German Empireball's Schliffen Plan offensives, being now in full Reichtangle mode. In [Ischl] (Franz Joseph's secret holiday place) he declared war on the Serbs.

With the help of German Empire-icon German Empireball, Bulgariaball and Ottoman Empireball, Austria-Hungaryball captured Belgrade-icon Belgrade in early 1915, but lost Premyszl to Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball's troops, but the 1915 Gorlitz-Tarnow offensive turned things around, and by 1917 Russian-Empire-icon Russiaball was on the retreat. He also fought Italy-icon Italyball in the Alps, but was defeated at Caporetto in 1917.

Then Russian-Empire-icon Russian Empireball had his Vivelaspin Revolution and left the war when he was murdered by his son Bolsheviksball, who became Soviet-icon Sovietball a few years later. As for Austria-Hungaryball, by 1918 he was falling apart, and Hungary-icon Hungaryball, Czech-icon Czechoslovakiaball, and Kingdom of Yugoslavia-icon Yugoslaviaball declared independence and left him.

Austro-Hungarian Defeat and Death

He (or they) surrendered in October 1918, and the Treaties of Saint-Germain and Trianon at the Versailles Peace conference sorted out the chaotic jumble of territories of the former Empire's clay. Austria-icon Austriaball and Hungary-icon Hungaryball are considered to be the now deceased Austria-Hungaryball's successors.
