Map of Austria-Hungary

Austria-Hungaryball was a multi-ethnic dual monarchy and constitutional union of the Austrian Empire-icon.png Austrian Empireball and the Kingdom of Hungary-icon.png 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 was dissolved into Austria-icon.png Austriaball, Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball, Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball, and Kingdom of Yugoslavia-icon.png Yugoslaviaball. He suffered from chronic bipolar disorder in certain comics.

History

Austrian-Hungarian Compromise (1867-1900)

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

In 1866, he was defeated by Kingdom of Prussia-icon.png Prussiaball and the German Empire-icon.png 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.png 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.png German Empireball in 1873, forming the League of Three Emperors with Russian-Empire-icon.png 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.png Italyball and German Empire-icon.png 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.png Bosniaball from the Ottoman-icon.png Ottoman Empireball in 1908, this caused tensions in the Balkan region with himself and Russian-Empire-icon.png 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.png Ottoman Empireball; Austria-Hungaryball had initially supported Kingdom of Serbia-icon.png 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.png Serbiaball, so when he murdered Austria-Hungaryball's Archduke in June 1914, Austria-Hungaryball mobilized against him, supported by German Empire-icon.png German Empireball, while Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball also mobilized against them to protect Kingdom of Serbia-icon.png Serbiaball, along with France-icon.png Franceball, and UK-icon.png UKball stepped in to defend Belgium-icon.png Belgiumball from German Empire-icon.png 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.png German Empireball, Bulgariaball and Ottoman Empireball, Austria-Hungaryball captured Belgrade-icon.png Belgrade in early 1915, but lost Premyszl to Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball's troops, but the 1915 Gorlitz-Tarnow offensive turned things around, and by 1917 Russian-Empire-icon.png Russiaball was on the retreat. He also fought Italy-icon.png Italyball in the Alps, but was defeated at Caporetto in 1917.

Then Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball had his Vivelaspin.gif Revolution and left the war when he was murdered by his son Bolsheviksball, who became Soviet-icon.png Sovietball a few years later. As for Austria-Hungaryball, by 1918 he was falling apart, and Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball, Czech-icon.png Czechoslovakiaball, and Kingdom of Yugoslavia-icon.png 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.png Austriaball and Hungary-icon.png Hungaryball are considered to be the now deceased Austria-Hungaryball's successors.
